The first season of FX’s Feud, which is about the legendary diva battle between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, doesn’t start airing until this Sunday and we don’t know if it’s a hit or not. But FX has already given Ryan Murphy and company the okay to start working on season two of Feud. I was really hoping that season 2 would be Feud: Shannen and Jennie with Shannen Doherty as Shannen Doherty and Jennie Garth as Jennie Garth (hey, if Gabrielle Carteris’ 30-year-old ass got away with playing a high schooler, then Shannen and Jennie can get away with playing their late-teen and twenty-something selves). Sadly, Ryan already said that Bette v. Joan would probably be the only Hollywood feud they cover, so they’re moving on to the royals. And double sadly, they’re not doing Prince George v. EVERYONE.
Variety says that FX has ordered 10 episodes of Feud: Charles and Diana. Writer Jon Robin Baitz (who wrote The Slap for NBC and is a producer on American Crime Story: Katrina) will write the scripts with Ryan Murphy. There’s not much info beyond that. We don’t know if they’re going to cover Princess Diana and Prince Charles’ marriage from start to finish or if they’re going to cover the last days of their marriage and go up to her death. Who knows, but I do know two things:
- Leslie Jordan better start bonding with Corgis, because he will be Queen Elizabeth.
- We better start preparing our ears because Sarah Paulson will probably do another British accent when she plays Princess Di.
But really, the role that Ryan Murphy’s regulars should be fighting over is the role of Prince Charles. Whoever gets to dress up in a Tampax costume to dance between Camilla Parker Bowles‘ pussy walls in a dream sequence is guaranteed the Emmy!
And here’s this generation’s Princess Diana, Duchess Kate, working hard during her visit to the Ronald McDonald House Evelina London today. And yes, I double slapped myself for calling her this generation’s Princess Diana.
