News Round-up Week Ending 10 August 2012

American Horror Story 2American Horror Story: Asylum

The second series of the TV show American Horror Story is going to be set in an insane asylum. The new series will be named American Horror Story: Asylum. Creator Ryan Murphy explains, “We picked ‘Asylum’ because it not only describes the setting – an insane asylum run by Jessica Lange’s character which was formerly a tuberculosis ward – but also signifies a place of haven for the unloved and the unwanted. This year’s theme is about sanity and tackling real life horrors.”
