American Horror Story teasers misdirect, say makers
Los Angeles, Aug 10 (IANS) Still looking for clues in the new teaser trailers for season six of “American Horror Story”? The makers say they have deliberately kept the teasers to ‘misdirect’.
The new season of FX’s hit TV series “American Horror Story” will premiere on the channel in September, and in India, it will air on Star World Premiere.
FX CEO John Landgraf spoke about the prevailing mystery of the upcoming sixth season at the Television Critic’s Association semi-annual press tour on Tuesday, reports ew.com.
“Every year, we’ve basically laid out the themes, the new genre that Ryan’s (Ryan Murphy co-creator of the show) going to be approaching, and we just thought (this year) it would be really fun to keep it a mystery,” said Landgraf.
He added: “So, we are. The scripts come in, and they’ve got my name emblazoned across them and there’s only one script that comes into the company.
“Everything’s blacked out that might give away the (setting)… and what (head of marketing) Stephanie (Gibbons) and her team, with Ryan’s help, did was they went out and made many more trailers than you’ve actually seen for hypothetical seasons of ‘American Horror Story’.
“Different genres, different places. I think they’re really fun and funny and beautifully, artfully made… And a lot of them are accurate. The others are all misdirects.”
