FEUD: Bette and Joan is set to premiere Sunday night on FX, featuring two of today's greatest actresses playing two of the greatest actresses from Hollywood's storied past.
FEUD is the latest anthology series to come from executive producer Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story, Scream Queens, American Crime Story), centering on history's greatest feuds. In season 1, subtitled Bette and Joan, the famous rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford is chronicled.
The season mostly takes place during the production of the 1962 thriller What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, the only movie they ever starred in together.
The series delves into "how the two women endured ageism, sexism, and misogyny while struggling to hang on to success and fame in the twilight of their careers," says the FX synopsis.
FEUD: Bette and Joan stars Susan Sarandon as Davis and Jessica Lange as Crawford, alongside Alfred Molina as Baby Jane director Robert Aldrich, Alison Wright as his assistant Pauline, Stanley Tucci as studio executive Jack Warner, Judy Davis as notorious gossip writer Hedda Hopper and Jackie Hoffman as Crawford's housekeeper Mamacita.
Other stars who will show up in recurring roles throughout the series include Catherine Zeta-Jones as Olivia de Havilland, Kathy Bates as Joan Blondell, Sarah Paulson as Geraldine Page, Kiernan Shipka as B.D., Bette Davis' daughter, and Dominic Burgess as Davis and Crawford's Baby Jane co-star, Victor Buono.
