The ensemble cast includes performances by Naomi Watts as Babe Paley, Chloë Sevigny as C.Z. Guest, Diane Lane as Slim Keith, Calista Flockhart as Lee Radziwill, and Demi Moore as Ann “Bang-Bang” Woodward.
Helmed by directors Gus Van Sant, Jennifer Lynch, and Max Winkler, this eight-episode limited series promises a deep dive into the tumultuous lives and relationships within this glamorous yet turbulent social circle. Mark your calendars for January 31 as the series debuts on FX, followed by streaming availability on Hulu the next day.
