Ryan Murphy’s New Show to be Centred Around 80s Queer Ballroom Scene

Aligning himself as one of the most sought out names in television production in recent years following major successes with the likes of American Horror Story, American Crime Story, Glee, The New Normal and Scream Queens, Ryan Murphy has announced he will begin working on a new series for FX based around the iconic LGBT+ ballroom scenes of the 80s.

Titled Pose, the series will be a non-anthology show and will begin filming in October this year in New York City. Deadline report that the show will be set in 1986 and will explore “the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York City: the emergence of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world.”

Political yet celebrating the vivid integrity of LGBT+ history, Murphy is seeking new and unknown actors to star in the show and teaming back up with American Crime Story producers Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson to create Pose.

Voguing, ballrooms, realness, pre-gentrification New York City and set in the era of AIDS, we have high hopes.
