Glee's Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are returning to FX.

The network, which aired the duo's Nip/Tuck for seven seasons, has ordered the hourlong drama pilot, American Horror Story. No details on the premise were provided.

Co-conceived by Murphy and Falchuk, the pilot will be directed by Murphy. Production begins in April with casting under way.

American Horror Story is a project that Brad and I have been discussing for a while,” Murphy said. “[FX president and general manager] John Landgraf and I have maintained a wonderful relationship since Nip/Tuck ended its run and he gave me an open invitation to develop a new show for the network.”

If FX decides to go forward with a series order, American Horror Story will begin filming in late spring and will launch in the fall.

Murphy also stressed that attention will still be paid to Glee. "Fans can rest assured that we haven't taken our eyes off that ball for a second," he said. "We've broken the stories for the season's remaining episodes and we've got big things planned for our little glee club as it strives to make it past Regionals to the all-important Nationals competition in New York City."

American Horror Story is produced by 20th TV. Murphy, Falchuk and Dante Di Loreto will serve as executive producers.
