Hobart alum Brad Falchuk ’93, the recipient of multiple Emmys as “Glee” co-creator, executive producer and director, is adding another television program to his growing resume. Falchuk and fellow “Glee” co-creator Ryan Murphy have had another television program picked-up. Their new venture, “American Horror Story,” will premiere on the FX Network this fall.
The highly anticipated drama will follow a small family as it relocates from Boston to Los Angeles to “reconcile past anguish.” Dylan McDermott, of the hit television show “The Practice,” and Oscar-winner Jessica Lange are set to star in the series. “American Horror Story” is slated to premiere in October.
Falchuk received his B.A. in English from Hobart in 1993. He began his career as a screenwriter on science fiction shows such as “Mutant X,” “Earth: Final Conflict” and “Veritas: The Quest.” Falchuk went on to write for the award-winning FX series “Nip/Tuck,” where he also served as a director and executive producer. Falchuk continues to write and serve as executive producer for Fox hit series “Glee.”
