If you're wondering just how weird and spooky FX's American Horror Story is, just watch the newly released promo below — not that you'll get any answers from it.
Fall Preview: Get scoop on this season's must-see new shows
The new drama from Glee
co-creators Ryan Murphy
and Brad Falchuk
tells the story of the fragile Harmon family: Ben (Dylan McDermott
), a therapist, and his wife Vivien (Connie Britton
) move with their daughter Violet (Taissa Farmiga
) to Los Angeles after Ben makes a terrible mistake that jeopardizes their family. The only problem? Their maybe-haunted new house may not be the best place to start over.
The promo offers the first peek at the supporting cast of haunting characters, including a combustible Denis O'Hare
, a floor-scrubbing maid (Frances Conroy
) and her sexier counterpart (Alexandra Breckenridge
), and Jessica Lange
, who can't be bothered with any of this weirdness.
