Disney’s FX is currently developing the second instalment of Ryan Murphy’s anthology series, “Feud”, which is going to be called “Feud: Capote’s Women” and is based on Laurence Leamer’s bestselling book “Capote’s Women: A True Story of Love, Betrayal, and a Swan Song for an Era. It chronicles the tale of the famous wunderkind author as he stabs several of his female friends — whom he called his “swans.”
Deadline is reporting that Chloë Sevigny will be playing the lead opposite, two-time Oscar nominee Naomi Watts as Babe Paley, who ruled the glamorous world of New York society in the 1960s and 70s. Chloë Sevigny has previously starred in Hulu’s “The Girl From Plainville ” and Netflix’s “Russian Doll”.
She will be playing the role of C.Z. Guest, who died in 2003 at the age of 83 and was a well-known fashion designer, socialite and actress who had a newspaper column about gardening and published a book on the subject.
Two-time Oscar nominee Gus Van Sant will direct all eight episodes of this series. With Tony and Pulitzer-nominated Jon Robin Baitz writing all episodes and he will also be serving as showrunner for the FX series. They will also both be executive producing the series.
“Feud: Capote’s Women” is also being executive produced by Ryan Murphy, Naomi Watts, Plan B’s Dede Gardner, Tim Minear, and Alexis Martin Woodall. The stars of the first season of “Feud”, Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon, will also be executive producers on the second season.
Filming is scheduled to begin later this fall in New York.
We should expect to see the new series available on FX and Hulu in the United States, and also released internationally as a Star Original on Disney+.
The first season of “Feud: Bette and Joan” is available to watch on Disney+ in several countries, including Canada and the United Kingdom.
