FX has placed a 13-episode order for “American Horror Story,” a drama starring Dylan “Handsome Schwimmer” McDermott, Connie Britton, and Jessica Lange, and created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the team responsible for “Glee” and “Nip/Tuck.”

Described as a psychosexual thriller, American Horror Story centers on a therapist (McDermott) and his wife (Britton) who, dealing with the aftermath of the husband’s adultery, move along with their kids into a new house that seems to know all about their fears and plays on them… In creating the show, Murphy and Falchuk took inspiration from classic 1970s horror movies, including Rosemary’s Baby, Don’t Look Now and The Shining.

When I was a lot younger, I thought haunted house stories were stupid. “Why don’t they just move to a different house?” I always said. When you’re an adult, they make a lot more sense. If I could afford a house with high ceilings, good light, a big kitchen, two sinks in the master bathroom, and it was located in a good school district… I’d take my chances with supernatural forces trying to kill me. I’d be like, “F**k you, ghosts. This kitchen has an island.”
