Ryan Murphy is heading to Hollywood for his third Netflix series.
The American Horror Story, Glee and Feud creator is one of the industry’s biggest hitmakers on the small screen, with a host of successes winning over audiences both in the USA and internationally. After a lengthy stint at FX, he was poached by Netflix last year to develop projects for them over a period of five years. Since then, he has already unveiled two projects: Ratched, based on the character from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and The Politician, a musical series about the political career of one Santa Barbara hopeful.
His latest, Hollywood, follows more in the footsteps of Feud, his drama about the rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford on the set of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?. Announcing the show on Instagram, he revealed that it was “a love letter to the Golden Age of Tinseltown”.
Little other details are known about the project, but he confirmed that it was ordered straight to series by Netflix. It is co-created with longtime collaborator Ian Brennan and will begin principal photography this summer.
“This will be my third show for Netflix and I couldn’t be more excited or proud about the work we are doing together,” he added.
