FX released the first three images from Ryan Murphy's newest anthology series. The first season is titled "Feud: Bette and Joan" and focuses on the bitter, legendary rivalry between screen stars Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) and Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange).

The show begins with the enemies starring together in 1962's "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" At that point, they were in their 50s and considered "washed up" — something that Murphy wants to explore.

"I wasn't interested in just doing this broad, campy [show]," he told Entertainment Weekly. "I was interested in the idea of sexism, ageism, misogyny. Turning 40, 45, 50 and feeling like you're at the height of your powers and people saying, 'Well, you're done.'"

"Feud" boasts an all-star cast including Alfred Molina, Stanley Tucci, Kathy Bates, and Sarah Paulson. It premieres March 5 on FX.
