BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- As a child, Ryan Murphy's grandmother forced him to watch the daytime horror soap "Dark Shadows." She did it to toughen him up.
Murphy, whose credits include "Nip/Tuck" and "Glee," is now the co-creator of an upcoming FX series, "American Horror Story." It stars Jessica Lange, Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton.
"American Horror Story" isn't so much about horror as about marriage and infidelity, Murphy told reporters on Saturday during a session of the Television Critics Association conference.
But series co-creator Brad Falchuk said both he and Murphy are obsessed with the horror genre. High on their list: "Don't Look Now," "The Shining" and "Jaws."
"American Horror Story" premieres Oct. 5.
