Twentieth Century Fox Television
Two months after Twentieth Century Fox Television began accepting bids for the off-net cable rights to the longest-running scripted series in TV history, a corporate sibling has emerged the victor.
FX today announced it has ordered up a fourth batch of Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology series American Horror Story, signing on for 13 new episodes to air next fall. Jessica Lange will return in an as-yet undetermined role for the fourth season, which will once again be produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television.
