Looking to follow the same model that AMC uses for its Talking Dead show which gives viewers the chance to discuss that week’s episode of The Walking Dead in a talk show format, FX Network is looking into the possibility of creating something similar for the upcoming season of American Horror Story: Coven. Read on for all the details.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, FX CEO John Landgraf tells THR that no decision has been made on whether the network will move forward with either an on-air or online effort to run with “Coven.”
“I’d love to do it,” Landgraf says of the potential talk show. “We’re thinking about it. If we do it I don’t think we’ll necessarily do it the way AMC does, as a linear thing. We might do an online thing. We haven’t made a final decision but I think there’s a decent possibility we’re going to do something like that for Coven.”
The executive noted that the network has done a “fair amount of legwork” on the potential companion, adding that it was too early to consider potential hosts for the entry. Also yet to be decided is what level of involvement Murphy would have.
I think it would be a good idea for AHS since the show is so out there at times, it might be nice to get some insight into each episode, we’ll see.
