I haven't yet seen the whole season of FX's FEUD: Bette and Joan, but the premise has be hooked already. A series about an imaged rivalry between two of the biggest Hollywood stars, how can you not be hooked? Ryan Murphy's upcoming limited series about the infamous dispute between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford might be the series you were looking for.

The show stars Susan Sarandon as Bette Davis and Jessica Lange as Joan Crawford. From Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning Executive Producer Ryan Murphy, FEUD premiered on Sunday, March 5th on FX. The first installment tells the story of the legendary rivalry during Crawford and Davis’ collaboration on the Academy Award-nominated thriller What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, and well after the cameras stopped rolling. The series explores how the two women endured ageism, sexism, and misogyny while struggling to hang on to success and fame in the twilight of their careers.

In addition to Oscar winners Lange and Sarandon, the cast 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.

Murphy serves as Executive Producer along with Executive Producers Tim Minear, Alexis Martin Woodall, and Dede Gardner and Brad Pitt of Plan B Entertainment. The series is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios.

Check out the first season trailer below.

"Feud’s most amazing accomplishment is translating these larger-than-life creatures and breaking them down to the most basic human emotions. Envy. Despair. Isolation. In the very first Feud episode, Olivia De Havilland (Catherine Zeta-Jones, who moves up from being just a talking head in this episode) explains that feuds are about pain. This episode, maybe more than any other so far, exposes the raw feeling that led these women to act the way they did, and does it so well that these inexcusable actions almost seem explainable; certainly, all the women involved had reasoning for their actions. Well, we all do." (A.V. Club)
