Next will be Prince Charles and Lady Di?


According to many different reports I'm reading, "Feud" has already been picked up for Season 2 (yay!), and the couple next time around will be Prince Charles and Lady Diana (ehhh). I had heard that Murphy was interested in doing Johnny Carson / Joan Rivers next, which would have been very interesting. I wonder what made him (or FX) change his mind?

reply


Charles and Di would probably pull in better ratings....sounds delish!

Especially since we now know the depressed (and anorexic) Diana attempted suicide by throwing herself down the palace stairs etc : o

reply

I don't know how much they can do with that story, given that Charles and many other people involved are still alive, and able to afford some very good lawyers.

reply

That sounds more like a suicidal gesture than a real attempt. The royals do a lot of hunting in their country houses. There are guns everywhere. Just saying, if she wanted to really die, it would not be that hard to do.

reply


Interesting.

reply

I think it would be tougher casting Rivers and Carson, too. I mean I can't see Lange playing Rivers (or anyone else for that matter) - she was quite the personality. (Carson would be easier to cast - probably Evan Peters?) . I think Charles and Di are a safer bet - for now.

reply


Wow. I didn't even remember them having a feud. I'm not sure how that would work since (according to google) Carson hung up on her, and never spoke to her again.

To play Joan, how about her daughter Melissa?

As to Evan Peters.....I don't know about that.

I won't watch any royal crap , what a load of sh*t!

reply

Me neither. Going from Hollywood legends to tabloid royalty? Ugh. Let's be honest, there isn't much to this concept but going tabloid already? Who's next Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom?

reply

Exactly! What about Kennedy and Khrushchev? And the Cuban missile crisis? Now THAT would be amazing !

reply

boring!

reply

Wait, forgive my ignorance, do you mean there's going to be a second season but the topic will be a different "feud" each season? I love this idea. It's brilliant!

reply

Yes, FX wants to do an anthology series like "American Horror Story". Each season of FEUD will have a new topic / subject matter, but all based on true stories.

reply

Doctor of what, exactly? Your notion of brilliance is stunted.

“Fox” and “brilliant”: words that don’t belong together.

Edit: This reply is clearly intended for McCormack, and should not be where the stunted MC software dumped it.

reply

hopefully not. their story has been done to death. driven into the ground. enuff!

reply

I'd be upset if Sarah Paulson plays Diana. She has her moments, but she's no Diana. I'm not sure who would be a good fit though.

reply

the couple next time around will be Prince Charles and Lady Diana (ehhh)

I, personally, have no interest in the "Royals."

As for Diana, her death was a great tragedy, but I resented the way she always complained about all the public attention.

That didn't stop her from emerging from limousines, "dressed to the nines" in designer clothes. It just says "look at me."

If she really wanted anonymity she should have pulled a Garbo: Don a coat and a big, floppy hat and disappear into the crowd.

You can't have it both ways.

I agree - can't stand all the reverence she gets.

reply

She was a nice person

It would be interesting if they dug into all the dirt in Charles' past (supposedly he's bi). Then you have the whole Camilla thing, as well.

On a fundamental level, it might be about the rancor that rises in the divorce process...even for people who once truly loved each other (if the couple in question ever did.) how a legal feud is created when money, feelings, kids and image are at stake.

On a side note, who ever expected grizzly Queen Elizabeth II to live this long????
