Ryan Murphy and the franchise born with American Horror Story

Produced by FX and 20th Television, Murphy's American Story franchise began with the American Horror Story anthology series in 2011, followed by its first spin-off series, American Crime Story , in 2016. Additionally, FX and Hulu recently launched an anthology spin-off called American Horror Stories, a new anthology series whose new episodes air every week, consisting of seven independent one-hour episodes, each of which tells a different horror story. In Italy, the series will be distributed on Disney + as a Star Original product from September 8 this year.

Like the other American Story series, American Sports Story and American Love Story will be both anthologies, telling a different story each season.

American Sports Story will focus on a singular and prominent figure in sport through the lens of today's world, telling the story from multiple perspectives. The first chapter of the series, currently untitled, is based on the podcast "Gladiator: Aaron Hernandez and Football Inc." from the Boston Globe and Wondery and will follow the rise and fall of the NFL superstar. Stu Zicherman (The Americans) will be the lead writer.

American Love Story will focus on true love stories, starting with the courtship and marriage of John F. Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette. The series will follow the couple as they face the pressures of being a prominent American family exposed to the microscope of the tabloid media, as well as political and family discord, which leads to the tragic death of the couples.

American Love Story and American Sports Story currently have no release date.

Aug. 13 (UPI) -- FX released the official trailer for part 1 of American Horror Story Season 10 on Friday. Red Tide is the first part of the season American Horror Story: Double Feature.

Red Tide shows an author (Finn Wittrock) move with his family to a beach house in Provincetown to work on his writing. His Wife (Lily Rabe) is pregnant and they already have a daughter (Ryan Kiera Armstrong).

FX had previously released a teaser for American Horror Story: Double Feature showing an alien and a vampire on a beach. The full trailer establishes the beachside location, and offers some glimpses at the vampire.

The author turns to some locals (Frances Conroy and Evan Peters) for inspiration to help combat his writer's block. Meanwhile, Leslie Grossman tells Macauly Culkin 'something weird is going on here and I want to know what it is.'

Further clips show the author obsessively typing, Angelica Ross doing lab work and a bloody body dangling over a table. Sarah Paulson and Billie Lourd also star in Red Tide.

Part 2 of American Horror Story: Double Feature is called Death Valley. Season 10 of American Horror Story premieres Aug. 25 at 10 p.m. on FX. Episodes stream on Hulu the following day.
