Ryan Murphy komt met nieuwe dans musical serie PoseDe Amerikaanse zender FX heeft een volledig seizoen besteld van Pose. De serie is een nieuw musical project van producenten Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson en Brad Falchuk. Pose heeft de grootste transgendercast ooit op de Amerikaanse televisie. Murphy was eerder verantwoordelijk voor series als Glee en American Horror Story. Murphy zei:

“I am thrilled to join forces with John Landgraf and FX Networks and FXP and Dana Walden, Gary Newman and Fox 21 Television Studios to present what I think is a game changer of a show, which at its heart is an uplifting series about the universal quest for identity, family and respect. Along with being a dance musical and an affirming look at American life in the 1980s, I’m so proud that Pose and FX has made history right from the beginning by featuring the most trans series regular actors ever in an American television production. Additionally, the first season Pose will feature 50-plus LGBTQ characters – a record in American television history. I can’t wait for people to see this incredibly talented, passionate cast.”

Pose speelt zich af in New York in de jaren 80 en gaat volgens de zender over het leven in societykringen; de opkomst van het luxe Trump-tijdperk, de literaire wereld en die van de ondergrondse homoscene. John Landgraf, CEO van FX Networks en FX Productions, vertelde:

“In the 15 years we’ve worked with Ryan, he has demonstrated time and again that every person’s story is joyful, illuminating, and must to be told. With Pose, Ryan, and his producing partners Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, introduce us to a new group of characters whose talent, life force, and self-made community is greater than the daunting obstacles created by a society that can be threatened by their native identities.”

FTG Chairman en CEOs Dana Walden & Gary Newman zeiden:

“A decade ago, Ryan brought us the groundbreaking pilot script for Glee, a show that celebrated underdogs, proudly showcased a completely diverse cast of unknown actors and led the way for new norms of inclusion and diversity on television. In Pose, Ryan has again, with his gifted collaborators, placed a spotlight on people who have been marginalized in society, bringing together emotional stories and a hugely talented cast in an inspirational series.”

Evan Peters (American Horror Story,  X-Men franchise) en Kate Mara (American Horror Story, House of Cards) spelen het New Jersey couple Stan en Patty, who get sucked into the glamour and intrigue of New York City in the 1980s. James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek, What Would Diplo Do?) is te zien als Peters’ financiële baas Matt. Vijf van de hoofdrolspelers zijn transgender en zij spelen ook mensen die zich niet identificeren met hun biologische sekse. De vijf, MJ Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Hailie Sahar, Angelica Ross en Indya Moore werden gecast na een zes maanden durende zoektocht naar geschikte acteurs. De opnames van de serie gaan binnenkort van start.
