‘Pose’ is an American drama television series that airs on FX. It first premiered on June 3, 2018. The show has been created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Steven Canals. Janet Mock is a co-executive producer, and Our Lady J is a supervising producer.
The show is set in the ’80s and explores the glamorous and scandalous New York City and how it respires through the advancing world. An exotic mix of various cultures and lifestyle choices, the series quickly attracted a strong and interested fan base. The critics have praised the series for its aesthetics, ambition, and focus on the minorities, with one critic saying it is “an engaging portrait of dark days met with merriment. Pain and perseverance are sewn together to create something humble yet fabulous—and, it should be shouted over all the show’s loud and glorious clamor, very much long overdue.”
Pose Cast: Who is in it?
The star-studded cast for ‘Pose’ includes names like Evan Peters and Kate Mara leading the charge. The predominantly unknown cast includes many first timers and background actors who have sprung to the center stage. But it is the casting of MJ Rodriguez as Blanca Rodriguez/Blanca Evangelista, “an HIV-positive trans woman who is the new mother of House Evangelista and former member of House Abundance”, which has really given the show a new meaning and outlook.
Bettie Midler, the star of ‘Hocus Pocus’ and Judith Light joined the show in the second season. Sandra Bernhard got bumped up from a guest star to a series regular and Patti LuPone, the Broadway legend, also joined the cast for season two.
Apart from the main cast, which includes plenty of trans actors, which is a major step in the right direction for diverse representation, the show has several supporting and guest characters who make the entire experience much richer, which is exactly what the network intended. In the next season, most of the main cast is expected to return, and we might even see some new characters.
