The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ From American Horror to American Crime?

Honey Buzz ~ From American Horror to American Crime?

The Wrap is reporting a story that I'm going to file under "Do we REALLY need this? Really??"

With Ryan Murphy riding high on the success of American Horror Story, FX is looking to capitalize by ordering a companion series entitled American Crime Story. It's also a piece of news that I was excited about for a total of 10 seconds, and then totally over it...so over it that I'm actually kind of pissed off now.

The first 10-episode installment of the new anthology series will follow the O.J. Simpson trial and be subtitled The People v. O.J. Simpson. It is based on the Jeffrey Toobin book, “The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson.”  Can YOU watch 10 episodes about OJ? I don't know if I can.

Subsequent seasons will focus on a different true crime story that captured headlines — so presumably we'll see some more high profile true crime cases that they're able to get the rights to...so next up should be Gacy, or maybe Richard Ramirez, or maybe Ted Bundy, or something else completely predictable like Jeffrey Dahmer! 

I don't even care anymore, and it's BREAKING NEWS
The first two hours of the miniseries will be written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, who will also earn exec producer credits.
“This is an exciting project for me,” commented Murphy, “as I've been looking for the right property which could serve as an extension of the ‘American Horror Story' brand I love so much. The O.J. case was as tragic as it was fascinating — it seemed like everyone had a stake in the outcome. It was really the beginning of the modern tabloid age.”
Production begins early next year in Los Angeles. It is produced by FXP and Fox 21, the companies that co-produce Sons of Anarchy.
