Kathy Bates happy being part of FX’s ‘Horror’

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Kathy Bates says she’s thrilled to be a regular on FX’s “American Horror Story.”

It’s almost good enough to rid her of the bad taste from her previous stint on series TV.

Even so, she told reporters at a Television Critics Association session on Friday that she’s got a bone to pick with NBC, which cancelled “Harry’s Law” last season after a two-year run.

Bates said NBC “kicked us to the curb.”

Things are happier on her current project, which just began shooting in New Orleans.

The Oscar-winning Bates plays Madame LaLaurie, a real-life 19th-Century Louisiana socialite and serial killer. She co-stars with Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett and Jessica Lange, who plays a witch.

“American Horror Story: Coven” premieres in October.
