It's like the nighttime soap opera horror equivalent of a hydra; cut one head off and three appear. This was certainly the case with the fifth fiery episode of "American Horror Story: Coven," "Burn, Witch. Burn!," in which mysteries were seemingly laid to rest while others gleefully popped up in their place. To quote the great American poet Nelly: it's getting hot in here.

Quite often, the Oscar-winning success of a film will lead to studios jumping over themselves to greenlight anything they have in the works that might be vaguely similar. "Slumdog Millionaire," for instance, led to development on a number of India-set projects, including the current sleeper hit "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel." "The King's Speech," meanwhile, has led to royal-related projects, from "W.E." and "Hyde Park On Hudson" to "Girls' Night Out" becoming quite the hot property.
