A nationwide search has culminated in the casting of five transgender actors for Ryan Murphy’s new FX series, Pose.
Set in the 1980s, Pose looks at the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York: the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world.
The cast includes transgender actors M.J. Rodriguez (above), Indya Moore, Dominique Jackson, Hailie Sahar and Angelica Ross.
The Pose pilot goes into production in November in New York City.
Underground alumni Rockmond Dunbar and Aisha Hinds has joined the cast of regulars for Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear’s new drama series, 9-1-1.
Also joining the shows as regulars are Oliver Stark (Into the Badlands) and Kenneth Choi (The Last Man on Earth).
The series – which explores the high-pressure experiences of police, paramedics and firefighters who are thrust into the most frightening, shocking and heart-stopping situations – has begun production and will debut in 2018.
Ryan Murphy – creator or co-creator of shows like Nip/Tuck and American Horror Story – has launched Half, an initiative within Ryan Murphy Television that aims to make Hollywood more inclusive by creating equal opportunities for women and minorities behind the camera.
Half has also launched a Directing Mentorship Program in which every director on every Ryan Murphy Television production mentors emerging directors through pre-production to post-production along with offering a significant stipend for their commitment.
