American Horror Story: Coven

FX seems to be on par with TNT, cranking out good original dramas, some even meant to keep you up late at night. This is the case with American Horror Story which first aired back in 2011.

This year, the show is moving south being set in New Orleans, while alternating between the present day and 1830s. Angela Bassett will have the role of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau. But more interestingly, Kathy Bates will portray socialite and, if stories are to be believed, mass murderess Madame LaLaurie. For these two reasons alone, I will be tuning into this series to see where they take things and how each of these two infamous women are portrayed.

Other stars of the show will be Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Frances Conroy, Lily Rabe and others. The premiere is October 9th on FX.
