American Horror Story - Another Hit For Ryan Murphy?

He's had his successes with both Popular and Nip/Tuck and Glee has become a worldwide phenomena but can Ryan Murphy strike again with, anthology themed show, American Horror Story?

The 13 part series, scheduled to air on FX in October features a family who move to a decrepit house, which happens to be haunted. The family are psychiatrist husband and wife Ben and Vivien Harmon, played by Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton as well as teenage daughter Violet, played by Taissa Farmiga.

Also featuring in the cast are Jessica Lange as Constance, Frances Conroy and Alexandria Breckingridge as the Harmon's housekeepers, Denis O'Hare as Larry Harvey and Evan Peters as Tate Langdon (one of Ben's patients). I'm not sure if an anthology series will work but knowing Ryan Murphy and company, this won't be as straight forward as it sounds.

American Horror Story premieres on FX from October 5th at 10pm. A UK broadcaster has to be confirmed.
