As the year draws to a close, there is very little going on in the 80s flashback world. However, you’ll be delighted to know that FX is hinting at a new show titled Pose and it’s got some serious 80s influence.
‘Pose’ : Another 80s Inspired Show on the Way
For one, Pose is set in 80s New York City, according to a recent report and one of the co-creators happens to be Ryan Murphy, the man who brought us American Horror Story.
“The FX channel says it’s ordered a scripted dance musical series starring Evan Peters, Kate Mara and James Van Der Beek,” according to Star Tribune.
Peters has been a mainstay on the American Horror Story cast for multiple seasons. He recently had a major role in the Cult-inspired season. Van Der Beek should be recognized by his days on the hit TV show, Dawson’s Creek, as well as the film Varsity Blues. Mara is an established actress who has appeared in multiple films and shows including House of Cards.
“FX said Wednesday that the series, titled ‘Pose,’ will include what it called an unprecedented number of LGBTQ and transgender actors in ongoing roles.”
There is no telling what 80s fans and viewers as a whole will be able to expect from the show. However, the report states that Murphy described it as a “universal quest for identity, family and respect.”
We’re expecting plenty of drama from this description. Production has not yet begun but there is an ambitious release of the summer of 2018. Stay tuned for more details as the show nears.
