After the successful premiere of "American Crime Story" with "The People V. O.J. Simpson," the show's Hurricane Katrina-focused season 2 hit a bit of a snag. 

“When you’re shooting in New Orleans, you have to worry about hurricanes,” FX president John Landgraf said during an interview at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. “You can only shoot there during certain times of the year.”

The show won't air until 2018 for creative reasons, according to a report from TVline

In a recent video interview (below), producer Ryan Murphy talked about the project.

"What happened here was a crime," Murphy said. "It was a crime against a very specific segment that was not treated well by our government. That was sort of thrown away and not cared about."

The show will take individual characters and look "intimately, through their eyes" as they went through the disaster.

Murphy also said, past the crime element, the show is important due to its strong climate change connections. 

"I think there's a very large global contingency to that story, because what happened in New Orleans with Katrina is going to happen again and again and again with even much more frequency in this country and around the world," Murphy said. "So it's sort of a hopeful … warning about 'we better watch it, because this is going to happen again."
