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.”
The series is going to star Naomi Watts as Babe Paley, who ruled the glamorous world of New York society in the 1960s and 70s. Also starring in the series will be Chloë Sevigny, Tom Hollander, Demi Moore, Diane Lane, Molly Ringwald, and Calista Flockhart.
According to Deadline, newcomer Ella Beatty will be playing the key role of Kerry O’Shea, who is the daughter of John O’Shea, Truman’s longtime lover. Truman later changes Kerry’s name to Kate. Estranged from both her parents, Kate is taken under Truman’s wing as his protégée, who introduces her to both the exhilaration of fashion, modeling, art and literature, as well as the heartbreak of watching another parental figure fall into a decline. Ella Beatty is the daughter of Warren Beatty and Annette Bening.
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.
We should expect to see “Feud: Capote’s Women” released on FX and Hulu in the United States, and as a Star Original on Star+ in Latin America and Disney+ internationally.
