Ryan Murphy’s New Show Will Cover the Love Story of JFK Jr. and Carolyn Bassette Kennedy
Famed ’90s couple John F. Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bassette Kennedy are the newest cultural icons to get the Ryan Murphy treatment.
FX announced yesterday that it is developing two new series with the American Horror Story creator, ahead of the premiere of Impeachment: American Crime Story. Per Deadline, the two new limited anthology series will expand Murphy’s American Story banner, which has covered sensational cultural moments throughout history, including the O.J. Simpson murder trial and the murder of fashion magnate Gianni Versace.
One of the series, called American Love Story, is a scripted anthology series of “sweeping true love stories that captured the world’s attention,” per Deadline. Its first season will depict the courtship and marriage of JFK Jr. and Carolyn Bessette. The son of President John F. Kennedy and the fashion publicist married in 1996, and the golden couple’s relationship captivated America until the pair’s untimely death in a 1999 plane crash.
