“Hollywood” — my new Netflix show co-created with Ian Brennan — begins principal photography this summer. A love letter to the Golden Age of Tinseltown, this straight-to-series production will be my third show for Netflix and I couldn’t be more excited or proud about the work we are doing together. More to come…
Murphy made a multi-million dollar deal with Netflix in 2018, much like fellow showrunner superstar Shonda Rhimes. Since his relationship began with the service, Murphy has created two other shows that are currently in the works: Ratched and Consent.
Ratched is a One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest prequel series starring frequent American Horror Story collaborator Sarah Paulson alongside Don Cheadle, Rosanna Arquette, Vincent D'Onofrio, Cynthia Nixon, and Corey Stoll, among others.
Meanwhile, Consent is an anthology series that takes a look at the different stories that arose out of the #MeToo movement.
No release dates for any of Murphy's projects with Netflix have been revealed at this time.
'Santa Clarita Diet,' 'Arrested Development' and more are on their way.
