10 ‘American Horror Story’ Facts to Take to the Grave
FX and Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story may reinvent itself each year, but did you know that each season shares at least some major connection? Or that major alum from The Walking Dead and Nine Inch Nails have worked behind the scenes? Lock your doors, and hide under the bed, the 26th episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?’ visits the Murder House for some frightful facts of FX’s American Horror Story!
Creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk sought to work on something darker and more challenging after the brightness of FOX’s Glee, even shooting on location in the 1908-constructed “Murder House,” before building sets to match it. Many notable stars of the series have woven in and out as well, as Connie Britton nearly appeared in Season 3’s Coven, and both Freak Show’s Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka turned down roles in Season 1.
