Planned anthology series centering on famous feuds, including Bette Davis and Joan Crawford that is discontinued at the moment.
• The series was in development – with Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon on board – for seven years before finally being given the green light.
• During the beginning credits of each episode, both Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon’s name switches for who’s shown first each week – as if they are fighting for top billing, much like their respective characters in the series.
• Jessica Lange claimed that she has never seen the film Mommie Dearest (1981) with its infamously scathing portrayal of Joan Crawford, and having made the series doubts that she ever will want to.
