“American Horror Story” To Tackle U.S. Election

Less than a day after Mark Boal and Megan Ellison announce their plans for a film about the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, producer Ryan Murphy has unveiled something similar.

Appearing on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live,” Murphy says the upcoming seventh season of FX’s “American Horror Story” will deal with “the election we just had”. Asked if ‘a Trump’ would appear as a character, Murphy says “maybe”.

As this is AHS though, expect a horror-toned spin on actual events. Murphy also confirmed there’s no title for it at present. Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are already set to return and filming on the new season begins in June.
