Delving into the riveting world of high society and literary genius, Ryan Murphy's anthology series 'Feud' is set to mesmerize audiences with its second season, titled 'Feud: Capote Vs. The Swans'. This compelling series will premiere on BINGE on February 1, taking viewers into the life and times of renowned American author Truman Capote in the glittering milieu of 1970s New York City.
Capote's Rise and Fall
Following the resounding success of his novel 'In Cold Blood', Truman Capote finds himself in the midst of an enviable circle of high-society women, his so-called 'swans'. However, the façade of glamour and camaraderie begins to crack when Capote betrays their trust, publishing 'La Cote Basque 1965', a short story exposing their private secrets. This act of treachery not only leads to his ostracism from this elite group but also marks the beginning of his descent into self-destruction.
The series boasts a dazzling cast, with Tom Hollander stepping into the shoes of Truman Capote. He is joined by an ensemble of talented actresses, including Naomi Watts, Chlo Sevigny, Calista Flockhart, Demi Moore, Molly Ringwald, and Diane Lane. The late actor Treat Williams, who tragically passed away in a motorbike accident, graces the screen in one of his final roles.
Legacy of 'Feud'
'Feud' first made waves in 2017 with a season focusing on the legendary rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford during the filming of 'What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?'. The series garnered 18 Emmy nominations, setting a high bar for its forthcoming season. As 'Feud: Capote Vs. The Swans' gears up for its premiere, it holds the promise of a narrative as enthralling and poignant as its predecessor.
