Ryan Murphy's Pose Ordered To Series

Pose, the dance musical about 1980s New York from Ryan Murphy, has been ordered to series by FX, according to a report by Deadline.

The show is set to follow several different elements of New York life and society in the era, touching on the downtown social and literary scene, the city's queer ball culture, and the rise of 80s excess and luxury. 

The queer aspect of the show has made headlines thanks to the project's record-breaking representation, with the series having the most trans actors in regular series roles of any show in history. Further, more than 50 LGBTQ characters will appear in the series, which Murphy says is also a record. Transgender directors are also expected to be brought on for future episodes.

Murphy, a creator or co-creator of Glee, American Horror Story, Scream Queens, American Crime Story, Feud and the upcoming 9-1-1, wrote the pilot for Pose with co-creators and executive producers Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals. Murphy is also set to direct the first two episodes of the series.

Pose will star Evan Peters and Kate Mara as Stan and Patty, a couple from New Jersey who begin to indulge in the glamorous world of NYC. James Van Der Beek will also appear as Peters' boss, a finance maven in the city. MJ Rodriguez, Indya Moore, Dominique Jackson, Hailie Sahar, and Angelica Ross are all also set to star. 

Along with Murphy and Falchuk, regular collaborators Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson will also serve as executive producers on the series.

The first season of Pose will run eight episodes; the series is set to premiere on FX in summer 2018.
