Glee’s Ryan Murphy Is Working on Two New TV Shows — That’s FIVE Shows in Total!
So does Glee creator Ryan Murphy not need to sleep? We’re not sure how else to explain the fact that he’s not only running three shows but is now producing two more! Slow down, buddy — you’re making the rest of us look bad.
Ryan’s production company, Ryan Murphy Television, has sold two pilots that will be developed for next season. The first pilot is a drama that sold to FOX and was written by the writer of last year’s horror flick Apollo 18. It’s described as “a family thriller set against one of the biggest conspiracies in American history in the small town of Montauk, Long Island.” Sounds like it’s in a similar vein to Ryan’s hit FX show, American Horror Story.
The other one is a comedy that sold to NBC, where Ryan’s sitcom The New Normal is currently airing. The premise of the comedy is being kept a secret for now, but the pilot was co-written by Max Winkler, son of Henry Winkler (a.k.a. The Fonz). Max directed the 2011 indie comedy Ceremony, which starred Uma Thurman.
So with Glee and The New Normal in full swing and AHS returning for Season 2 in two weeks, it seems that we may soon be seeing Ryan Murphy’s name on TV on a nearly constant basis. So as long as he doesn’t spread himself too thin, we’re going to consider this sudden burst of new shows a very good thing!
