TGL Round-Up: Major Shakeups with American Crime Story: Katrina, Netflix Announces The Crown Premiere Date


American Crime Story: Katrina just got with a hurricane of its own, Variety confirms.

The planned third season of the Ryan Murphy FX anthology series will now be based on the book “Five Days at Memorial” by Sheri Fink. Scott Rudin, who previously acquired the rights to the book, will now join “Katrina” as an executive producer alongside Murphy, Brad Simpson, and Nina Jacobson.

Annette Bening, Matthew Broderick, and Dennis Quaid have also been let go from the cast. Only Ryan Murphy’s frequent collaborator Sarah Paulson will remain.

Netflix has announced The Crown’s series 2 premiere date in the latest teaser trailer for the show about royalty.

Set between 1956 and 1964, it “bears witness to the end of the age of deference and ushers in the revolutionary era of the 1960s,” according to a statement provided by Netflix.

The Crown series 2 is released on December 8th and stars Matt Smith and Claire Foy.



  1. Ryan Murphy needs to fucking slow down with the American franchises. Seems like there’s about fifty of the fuckers on right now. It’s like Law & Order back in the day.


  2. Fucking incredible that the show is called The Crown, its lead actress plays the, sort of, tittle character and has been nominated and won awards for the LEADING role, yet the guy who plays her husband in a supporting role is listed as the star and named before her. Sexism so incorporated into our culture that is just skin crawling


  3. BTW: The Crown is just a glossy shit show. A boring soap, with some serious bad acting, but of course the royals and British hype makes it look precious.
