Feud: Bette and Joan


New Zealand Premiere

Tuesdays 8.30pm Channel 010

The first instalment of the new anthology series from Ryan Murphy (architect of the long-running American Horror Story and newly-minted American Crime Story anthologies) tells the story of the legendary rivalry between Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon), both during their 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 Academy Award® 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. 

Starring Susan Sarandon (Thelma & Louise), Jessica Lange (American Horror Story), Alfred Molina (Show Me A Hero), Stanley Tucci (Fortitude), Judy Davis (The Dressmaker), Jackie Hoffman (Birdman) and Alison Wright (The Americans), with guest stars Dominic Burgess (The Leftovers), Catherine Zeta-Jones (Chicago), Sarah Paulson (The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story), Kathy Bates (American Horror Story), and Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men).
