  • Ryan Murphy, producer of American Crime Story and American Horror Story (seen in a file photo with actor Kathy Bates), says that season 2 of his crime anthology will be set in the days following Hurricane Katrina and the federal floods of New Orleans.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, season 2 of the FX network anthology series American Crime Story will be set in the days following Hurricane Katrina and the federal floods.

Producer Ryan Murphy, who created Glee and the various American Horror Story installments (one of which was set in New Orleans), told the paper:
Murphy says the working plan is to follow a group of six to eight people in an attempt to examine all sides of the tragedy, from the Superdome in New Orleans to the hospital to those who were put on buses and dropped off with babies who had to wear trash bags for multiple days. "I want this show to be a socially conscious, socially aware examination of different types of crime around the world," he says on a rare quiet afternoon in his L.A. office in mid-December. "And in my opinion, Katrina was a f—ing crime — a crime against a lot of people who didn't have a strong voice, and we're going to treat it as a crime. That's what this show is all about."
No script has been written, but the producer hopes to begin filming this fall. Meanwhile, season 1 of American Crime Story — 10 episodes focusing on the media circus around O.J. Simpson's 1995 trial — will begin airing Feb. 2.
