The latest iteration of American Horror Story – American Horror Story: Freak Show – will premiere on Wednesday, October 8th (10/9C).
The new season is set in a sleepy Florida hamlet called Jupiter, in 1952. A traveling freak show has arrived in town – just as a strange, dark entity emerges that will threaten townsfolk and freaks alike. American Horror Story: Freak Show is the tale of the struggle for survival ‘amidst the dying world of the American carny experience.’
According to Variety.com, Sci Fi is developing a new take on Alien Nation, the 1988 feature that previously spawned a spinoff series on Fox.
Tim Minear – a veteran of sci-fi TV, having worked on The X-Files, Firefly and Strange World – is developing the pilot and series bible for the series, which is built upon the relationship that develops between a human cop and one from the ranks of the alien “Newcomers” whose ship crashed on Earth twenty years earlier.
