Trivia

The series was in development - with Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon on board - for seven years before finally being given the green light.
Three Oscar winners (Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon, Catherine Zeta-Jones) portray three other Oscar winners (Joan Crawford, Bette Davis and Olivia de Havilland, respectively).
Catherine Zeta-Jones was Ryan Murphy's only choice for the role of Olivia de Havilland, which he offered to her personally.
Onset in the first episode, Bob Aldritch (Alfred Molina) wears his tie undone yet clipped near the bottom. This is the same way the director wears his tie early on in What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?
Jessica Lange, who has won two Oscars in her career, plays Joan Crawford, who won one Oscar in her career. Susan Sarandon, who has won one Oscar in her career, plays Bette Davis, who won two Oscars in her career.
Although Bette Davis is seen maliciously wearing Joan's old wig, in actuality neither of them knew about this until after filming because the wig had been groomed
Feud (2017) is the first television show for Catherine Zeta-Jones in 21 years, the last being Titanic (1996).
Season 1 is based on a feature-length script called Best Actress by Jaffe Cohen and Michael Zam which was featured in the 2009 Black List (a compilation of the most liked unmade screenplays of the year).
Ryan Murphy himself is a great impressionist of the characters, as said by Susan Sarandon on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
