If there's anyone who knows feuding actresses, it's Ryan Murphy. 

The former "Glee" showrunner, who spent years trying to quell the bad blood between Lea Michele and Naya Rivera, is about to bring some of Hollywood's juiciest celebrity feuds to the small screen yet again.

On Thursday, FX announced it picked up Murphy's latest anthology franchise, "Feud." The first season stars Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon as legendary rivals Joan Crawford and Bette Davis and follows how the iconic actresses came to co-star in 1962's "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" 

For those unfamiliar with their rivalry, just know that Davis is widely quoted as having told reporters, "The best time I ever had with Joan Crawford was when I pushed her down the stairs in 'Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?'”

Alfred Molina, Stanley Tucci, Judy Davis and Dominic Burgess have also been cast in the series, which begins production in the fall and is slated to air in 2017.
