Pose - FX
Sunday, June 3 9/8c
Ryan Murphy's latest series is not an anthology, but something much rarer on television: a "dance musical." Pose explores various aspects of New York life in the 1980s, especially ball culture but also the literary scene and the rise of luxury living and excess (think Donald Trump). While Evan Peters, Kate Mara, and James Van Der Beek may be the most recognizable names attached to the project, the series features the largest LGBTQ cast ever assembled for a scripted TV show—with a number of transgender actors among the series regulars.

Already being described as Empire set within the media industry, HBO's new drama series follows the ups and downs of a family-owned global media conglomerate, whose wealthy, powerful leader/patriarch (Brian Cox) is absolutely, positively, 100% not modeled after Rupert Murdoch, or so the official word goes. The series comes from Peep Show co-creator Jesse Armstrong and is produced by Adam McKay, who also directs tonight's first episode. Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin, Matthew Macfadyen, Sarah Snook, and Alan Ruck also star.
