Ryan Murphy’s Pose Ordered by FX Sans Tatiana Maslany

The latest from the FX darling responsible for Nip/Tuck and American Horror StoryPose had already made history for casting the largest number of transgender regular cast members ever for a scripted series. Whatever FX was shown was apparently good enough as the prestige drama powerhouse has ordered the drama to series.

Set in 1986, the show will tell stories within multiple enclaves of New York City life, including the LGBTQ+ subculture known as ball culture. The many transgender actors cast will play transgender characters, and the series will include a multitude of gay and transgender writers and directors. Altogether the first season will feature over 50 LGBTQ+ characters, also a TV record.

Ryan Murphy says the show is “at its heart is an uplifting series about the universal quest for identity, family, and respect.”

As Pose moves forward, however, it will move forward without acting goddess Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), who was previously set to star as a dance teacher. Thankfully she was replaced with Charlayne Woodard (The Leftovers), a wonderful actress in her own right, and rewritten to reflect the change.

The newly-ordered series was co-created by Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals and will contain eight episodes in its first season. Pose is set to hit FX sometime in Summer 2018.
