Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Annette Bening will join the upcoming “Katrina: American Crime Story,” which is the next installment after “The People v. O.J. Simpson.”

Ryan Murphy will be the boss for the next installment and Bening will star in the upcoming franchise as the former Louisiana governor Kathleen Blanco. Bening is a four-time Oscar nominee and a Golden Globe nominee for this year. Bening has been focusing on big screen projects. Her last small screen gig was in the 2005 HBO TV movie “Mrs. Harris.”

The ACS show will re-tell the destructive Hurricane Katrina, which devastated citizens in the United States in 2005. Blanco is the real-life one-term governor of Louisiana and was the first woman elected for the state. The series is set to focus on how she was able to coordinate with the efforts to help the citizens before and after the storm.

The stars from “The People v. O.J. Simpson” who will still be appearing in “Katrina: American Crime Story” are Courtney B. Vance, Sarah Paulson, and Cuba Gooding Jr . Their roles are yet to be announced.

The show will debut sometime in 2018 followed by the murder of Gianni Versace and the Monica Lewinsky affair.

FX Networks CEO John Landgraf said in a statement, “They’re going to have a long hiatus, and then we’re going to get back on cycle. They’re going to air within about six months of each other.” “Versace” will shoot first but “Katrina” will air ahead of it.
