The vastly different worlds of 1980s New York City coalesce around the city’s dazzling underground ballrooms in the trailer for Ryan Murphy‘s new FX series, Pose. The dance musical’s eight-episode first season premieres June 3rd at 9 p.m. ET.
The clip teases the show’s impressive ensemble cast and scope, which covers “the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world.” In the trailer’s opening scene, members of a House – groups comprised primarily of black and Latinx LGBT youth that walk in balls – pull off a massive garment heist and debut their exquisite duds at an uproarious ball. Elsewhere, a down-on-his-luck dancer finds a family, and a place to practice his craft, in one such house, while a rising corporate star seeks love not with his wife, but a trans sex worker.
Pose notably boasts the largest cast of transgender actors for a scripted TV series, including Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore, Hailie Sahar and Angelica Ross. The show will also star Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek and Tony-winner Billy Porter.
Ryan Murphy directed the first two episodes of Pose and co-created the show with Brad Falchuck and Steven Canals.
