Netflix bought Ryan Murphy for a deal estimated to be $25-300 million. Ryan has made FX a lot of money with shows like “American Horror Story,” “American Crime Story,” and “Feud.” But after the Disney/Fox deal went down, the streaming giant swooped in and stole the show creator for a five-year deal, meaning Ryan will be making shows exclusively for Netflix.
“Ryan Murphy’s series have influenced the global cultural zeitgeist, reinvented genres and changed the course of television history. His unfaltering dedication to excellence and to give voice to the underrepresented, to showcase a unique perspective or just to shock the hell out of us, permeates his genre-shattering work,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix, to Deadline.com. “From Nip/Tuck – our first licensed series – to American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson and American Horror Story, we’ve seen how his brand of storytelling captivates consumers and critics across the globe. His celebrated body of work and his contributions to our industry speak for themselves, and we look forward to supporting Ryan in bringing his broad and diverse stories to the world.”
Ryan already has two Netflix shows in the works, named “Ratched,” based on the nurse from “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and “The Politician” which Ben Platt leads. Surely the talented creator has a lot up his sleeves — we’ll just have to wait and see what’s in store.
