During the recent Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour, it was announced that Ryan Murphy’s empire was extended further. During the FX space, it was announced that the channel and 20th Television had reached an agreement to produce two more anthology spin-off series, American Sports Story and American Love Story. In addition, a second season has been confirmed for American Horror Stories.
Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Nina Jacobson, and Brad Simpson will take care of the two new projects. FX President John Landgraf said on the matter, as reported by Deadline:
“When Ryan Murphy came to us with these two spin-offs and the stories for American Sports Story and American Love Story, we jumped at the opportunity. What started with American Horror Story has spawned some of our generation’s best and most memorable shows. Particularly American Crime Story led to a wonderful collaboration between Ryan, Nina, and Brad. Their alchemy and how they construct these stories require such care, clarity, and dimensionality to give life to the wonders of The OJ Simpson Case, The Assassination of Gianni Versace and Impeachment. We are eager to see what else follows.”
As for the spin-off American Horror Stories, we still have no news about the second season’s plot. We only know that it should be back on TV in 2022. As always, each episode will be a stand-alone one, unlike the two shows that follow.
As can be seen from the title, American Sports Story focuses in general on a specific event related to a well-known personality of the world of sport, examined through a more modern vision and told through multiple points of view. The first season, in particular, is based on the Boston Globe podcasts and Wondery, Gladiator: Aaron Hernandez and Football Inc. Therefore, the protagonist is the superstar of American football Aaron Hernandez, with all his tragic history.
On the other hand, American Love Story tells about some of the love stories that have most captured public attention. The first romance dealt with is that of John F. Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette, unfortunately, ended tragically with the death of both in a plane crash.
