"Feud" (TV show) is an anthology drama series on FX that explores the bouts and blows of epic conflicts.

The first installment, "Feud: Bette and Joan," stars Academy Award winners Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon and tells the story of the legendary rivalry between two of the greatest movie stars of all time — Joan Crawford (Lange) and Bette Davis (Sarandon), and how they came together in 1962 to collaborate on a picture each hoped would revive their careers. The result, the critically acclaimed and box office smash "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" ultimately received five Academy Awards nominations and became a cult classic. But for its leads, Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, the real horror was working together. The pilot is based in part on the script "Best Actress" by Jaffe Cohen and Michael Zam which Murphy purchased.

The cast also includes Alfred Molina as the film's director Robert Aldrich, Stanley Tucci as studio titan Jack Warner, Judy Davis as gossip columnist Hedda Hopper, Jackie Hoffman as Crawford's housekeeper Mamacita, and Alison Wright as Aldrich's assistant Pauline.

Notable guest stars include Dominic Burgess as Crawford and Davis' co-star Victor Buono, Academy Award winner Catherine Zeta-Jones as film star Olivia De Havilland, Sarah Paulson as Geraldine Page, Academy Award winner Kathy Bates as Joan Blondell and Kiernan Shipka as B.D., Bette Davis' daughter.

"Feud" is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios ("American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson," "Homeland") and is executive produced by Ryan Murphy, Tim Minear, Alexis Martin Woodall, and Dede Gardner and Brad Pitt of Plan B Entertainment.
