FX has announced that ballroom drama Pose is set to premiere Sunday, June 3rd at 9:00.
From Ryan Murphy (American Crime Story), Brad Falchuk (Glee), and Steven Canals (Dead of Summer), Pose takes place during the 1980s in New York and follows New Jersey couple Stan (Evan Peters) and Patty (Kate Mara) as they encounter the world of ball culture. The series will feature the largest transgender series regular cast ever, as well as the largest LGBTQ cast ever for a scripted series.
In addition to Peters and Mara, Pose stars James Van Der Beek (Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23), Billy Porter (The First Wives Club), and newcomer Ryan Jamaal Swain. The series joins a scripted slate for FX that includes Snowfall, Better Things, and Feud, with Viceland premiering an unscripted series about the ballroom scene April 25th.
