Connie Britton

Friday Night Lights star Connie Britton has been tapped to star in American Horror Story, a series for FX by Glee creators Ryan Murphy (who also created Nip/Tuck) and Brad Falchuk. Filming of the pilot episode will begin in April (after the current season of Glee has wrapped). Though details on the show are scarce, Murphy says it is a story he and Falchuk have been discussing for a long time. “[FX President] John Landgraf and I have maintained a wonderful relationship since Nip/Tuck ended its run and he gave me an open invitation to develop a new show for the network,” Murphy says. “FX is the perfect place for this series and we look forward to a great homecoming.”
