Oscar winner KATHY BATES has blasted her former TV bosses at NBC over the cancellation of her legal drama HARRY'S LAW.
The Misery star was addressing the media at Friday's (02Aug13) Television Critics Association press tour when one reporter asked her if the disappointment of her last TV hit had made her think twice about signing up for the new season of Glee creator Ryan Murphy's drama American Horror Story.
Bates raged, "I think they (NBC executives) treated us like s**t. They kicked us to the curb. They disrespected us. They disrespected our 11 million viewers every week.
"I thought, after all of that, I wouldn't (go back to TV), but I met with Ryan and I must say that when he pitched this show to me, this little kid in me started running around jumping."
Bates will make her debut on American Horror Story later this year (13).
