The hit FX Network Golden Globe Nominated horror-drama series American Horror Story has been renewed for a third season and the award winning casting team is now holding auditions for new series regulars and guest stars. The show’s format is anthology based, whereas the story, characters, and location for each season is different. The show’s guest stars and extras will be cast throughout the season. After two seasons shooting in Los Angeles, the series moves to The Big Easy for it’s third season. Filming begins in July, 2013 in New Orleans, LA.
“American Horror Story: Coven” will center on a family who moves across country after suffering a tragedy. The theme will be witches and witch hunts. Two-time Academy Award winner Jessica Lange will be playing a “glamor cat” and will be going at it against Academy Award winner Kathy Bates’ mentally unstable character. Bates will portray a woman who, at the start, is Lange’s character’s best friend, but will become her worst enemy.
Primetime Emmy Award winners Ryan Murphy and Dante Di Loreto will executive produce for Ryan Murphy Productions. Murphy’s good friend and co-creator of “American Horror Story”, four-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee Brad Falchuk, will also executive produce.
