The Human Rights Campaign just released an 18-minute tribute honoring the 49 victims of the massacre at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub. The clip, directed by Ryan Murphy and Ned Martel, tells the personal stories of those who lost their lives that tragic night.

“The hate that stole these 49 individuals from all those who loved them has been allowed to flourish in our country for too long,” Murphy said in a statement. “No person is born hating another, and we have an obligation as Americans to stand up against prejudice and bigotry that would incite violence against someone simply for who they are. I am proud to have joined with Ned Martel, my talented colleagues, and the Human Rights Campaign to honor these 49 heroes and stop the hate.”

Stop The Hate: 49 Celebrities Honor 49 Victims of Orlando Tragedy

For too long, a toxic combination of anti-LGBTQ hate and easy access to guns has put LGBTQ people at disproportionate risk of violence and murder. On June 12, forty-nine innocent people — most of them Latinx — were killed at Pulse nightclub in Orlando simply because of who they were. It’s on all of us to keep their memories alive, and to ensure part of their legacy becomes meaningful action to end hate violence. Join the Human Rights Campaign and urge your legislator to support legislation that will ensure LGBTQ people are safe and equal in every community and find out how to support the survivors and families of the Orlando victims.

The celebrities telling their stories are (in order of appearance) Lady Gaga, Chris Pine, Cuba Gooding Jr., Connie Britton, Matt Bomer, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Lea Michele, Colton Haynes, Sophia Bush, Jane Fonda, Harry Shum Jr., Denis O’Hare, Rob Reiner, Melissa Benoist, Caitlyn Jenner, Edgar Ramirez, Max Greenfield, Chaz Bono, Cheyenne Jackson, Emma Roberts, Kerry Washington, George Lopez, Evan Rachel Wood, Sofía Vergara, Diego Boneta, Nina Jacobson, Demi Lovato, Tyler Oakley, Yeardley Smith, Kid Cudi, Kaitlin Olson, Kevin McHale, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lee Daniels, Chace Crawford, Evan Peters, Gerard Butler, Katey Sagal, John Stamos, Laverne Cox, Jordana Brewster, Wes Bentley, Finn Wittrock, Darren Criss, Kathy Bates, Anna Paquin, Guillermo Díaz and Joe Mantello.

At this point FX should really change its name to RMN, the Ryan Murphy network. It just ordered another anthology series from the 50-year-old uber producer to go along with his hit franchises American Horror Story and American Crime Story.

His latest creation, Feud, will explore some of the greatest “personality conflicts” in history. The eight episode first season will tackle the rivalry between Joan Crawford and Bette Davis who co-starred in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?

“Feud adds a third and equally ambitious franchise to Ryan’s unprecedented slate of FX anthological limited series,” said FX Networks CEO John Landgraf in a statement. ” The series will offer a seductive, insightful look at what lies behind legendary personality conflicts.”

Jessica Lange reunites with Murphy to play Joan Crawford in the new anthology. They previously collaborated for four seasons of American Horror Story. Read below to learn who’s tackling Bette Davis.

FOX Renews Scream Queens For A Second Season

And like Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhies and Michael Myers, it appears nothing can kill Scream Queens even with its mediocre ratings. The FOX horror series averaged just 2.8 million weekly viewers and a 1.1 demo, but the network decided to give it a second season.

I’m sure the renewal has more to do with wanting to stay on Ryan Murphy’s good graces than anything else. Though the network claims only 30 percent of its audience watched live. Across multiple platforms, the show drew a total audience of 7.2 million viewers, a 167 percent increase from its same-day audience, according to them.

The trial wasn’t the whole story. This is, touts FX. After countless teasers, the network just unveiled the first trailer for their highly-anticipated new anthology series, American Crime Story. And it’s an intense one.

The first season focuses on the trail of the century, The People vs OJ Simpson. The minute-long trailer highlights the drama inside and outside the courtroom and all the maneuvering on both sides. The infamous trial is told from the perspective of the lawyers.

The star-studded cast is on full display in the clip. John Travolta (Robert Shapiro), Cuba Gooding Jr. (OJ Simpson), Sarah Paulson (Marcia Clark), David Schwimmer (Robert Kardashian), Courtney B. Vance (Johnnie Cochran), Connie Britton (Faye Resnick), Selma Blair (Kris Jenner), Malcolm-Jamal Warner (A.C. Cowlings), Billy Magnussen (Kato Kaelin), Steven Pasquale (Mark Fuhrman), Cheryl Ladd (Mrs. Shapiro) and Jordana Brewster (Denise Brown) are just a few of those appearing in the 10-episode miniseries.

It’s the infamous Bronco chase that captivated viewers twenty-one years ago. Who could forget that indelible image of OJ Simpson driving down a Los Angeles freeway as dozens of police cars followed him from a distance? It truly was riveting.

American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson promises to bring viewers inside that white vehicle during the tense chase as Simpson held a gun to his head. “You saw the Bronco,” the brief clip reads. “But you weren’t in the Bronco.”

The ten-episode miniseries featuring an all-star cast including Cuba Gooding Jr, John Travolta, Sarah Paulson, David Schwimmer, Selma Blair and Connie Britton premieres February 2016 on FX. Check out the Bronco teaser below along with another new clip featuring OJ writing his suicide letter. I can’t wait for the Ryan Murphy series to premiere.

It appears that Ryan Murphy is taking the same approach to promote American Crime Story as he has in the past for his other FX anthology series by releasing a bunch of teasers. The prior one featured the voices of the major players involved in the infamous OJ Simpson trial. This new one puts the spotlight on the only witness of the murder.

During the infamous double murder trial of the century, it was noted that Nicole Brown Simpson’s dog lead her neighbor to the body. Bloody paw prints from the dog were also found on the scene, leading to the assumption that the canine witnessed the murder.

The eerie new teaser shows a dog on Bundy Drive outside Brown’s Brentwood condo. Watch the teaser below.

Show Synopsis

American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, the first installment of the new limited series from prolific producer Ryan Murphy, will debut on FX in early 2016 with an all-star cast portraying the key figures in the infamous O.J. Simpson murder trial. The cast includes Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson, John Travolta as defense attorney Robert Shapiro, David Schwimmer as defense attorney Robert Kardashian, Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark, Courtney B. Vance as defense attorney Johnnie Cochran, and Bruce Greenwood as Los Angeles County District Attorney Gil Garcetti.

Based on the book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin, the limited series is a look at the O.J. Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers. It explores the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution overconfidence, defense shrewdness, and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.

Most series today simply put up a title card as their opening credits and call it day. Lazy bitches 😉 Not to sound like a senior citizen, but I miss the days when elaborate opening sequences were the norm.

Ryan Murphy just shared the super-sized main title sequence for Scream Queens. I highly doubt the full version will air on the network, but I appreciate the effort. Not surprisingly, Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas aren’t included in the clip given that they’re only billed as guest stars.

Scream Queens debuts on FOX on September 22. Check out the bloody intro below where Emma Roberts, Lea Michele and company show off their screaming skills.

For those hoping this means Jessica Lange is taking part in American Horror Story: Hotel, sadly you’ll be disappointed. The 66-year-old actress still hasn’t caved in. I still think though, she’ll make a surprise cameo during the FX anthology’s fifth season. Fingers crossed.

Lange is indeed reuniting with Ryan Murphy, but for something completely different. Find out below.
