FX Orders Pamela Adlon Comedy, FXX Picks Up Animated
FX has set the premiere date for The Bastard Executioner, the highly anticipated period drama from
creator Kurt Sutter — and scheduled the returns of its hit anthology franchises American Horror Story: Hotel and Fargo, the network announced on Friday.
as “a blood-soaked, medieval epic that tells the story of Wilkin Brattle (Lee Jones), a 14th century warrior, whose life is forever changed when a divine messenger beseeches him to lay down his sword and lead the life of another man: a journeyman executioner. Set in northern Wales during a time rife with rebellion and political upheaval, Wilkin must walk a tight rope between protecting his true identity while also serving a mysterious destiny. Guided by Annora (Katey Sagal), a mystical healer whose seeming omniscience keeps Wilkin under her sway; manipulated by Milus Corbett (Stephen Moyer), a devious Chamberlain with grand political aspirations; and driven by a deepening connection with the Baroness Lady Love Ventris (Flora Spencer-Longhurst), Wilkin struggles to navigate political, emotional and supernal pitfalls in his quest to understand his greater purpose.”\

will feature a cast including Lady Gaga, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Chloë Sevigny, Denis O’Hare, Cheyenne Jackson, Evan Peters and Finn Wittrock.
will be a prequel of sorts, following a new “true crime” case dating back to 1979 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota. The network logline for the show is as follows: Lou Solverson (Patrick Wilson), a young State Trooper recently back from Vietnam, investigates a case involving a local crime gang, a major Mob syndicate and a small town beautician Peggy Blumquist (Kirsten Dunst) and her husband Ed (Jesse Plemons), the local butcher’s assistant. Helping Lou piece things together is his father-in-law, Sheriff Hank Larsson (Ted Danson). Other cast members include Nick Offerman, Bokeem Woodbine, Jean Smart, Jeffrey Donovan, Angus Sampson and Kieran Culkin.
