Chloë Sevigny Joins FX’s ‘Feud: Capote’s Women’

Chloë Sevigny will play the lead opposite Naomi Watts in Season 2 of Ryan Murphy’s “Feud” anthology series.  The second season will be titled Capote’s Women and is based on the book “Capote’s Women: A True Story of Love, Betrayal, and a Swan Song for an Era” by Laurence Leamer.

An adaptation of Laurence Leamer’s bestselling book “Capote’s Women: A True Story of Love, Betrayal, and a Swan Song for an Era,” the miniseries is set in the 1970s, and ends with Truman Capote’s death in 1984. It chronicles the tale of the famous wunderkind author as he stabs several of his female friends — whom he called his “swans” — in the back by publishing a roman à clef short story called “La Côte Basque 1965” in Esquire in 1975. The piece was intended to be a chapter in Capote’s infamous unfinished novel “Answered Prayers,” his followup to the blockbuster “In Cold Blood.”

The eight-episode season will be directed by two-time Oscar nominee Gus Van Sant.  Jon Robin Baitz will write the new season and serve as showrunner.

Baitz, Van Sant and Watts are executive producing Feud: Capote’s Women alongside Murphy, Plan B’s Dede Gardner, Tim Minear, and Alexis Martin Woodall, who all executive produced/produced Season 1, Feud: Bette and Joan. 20th Television is the studio, producing with Plan B Entertainment and Ryan Murphy Productions.

Production is slated to begin in New York this Fall.

Sevigny recently starred in Hulu’s limited series The Girl From Plainville and had a major role in Season 2 of Netflix’s Russian Doll.
