Ryan Murphy confirms five more Netflix projects in development
These include a miniseries about fashion designer Halston and an adaptation of musical A Chorus Line.
Prolific producer Ryan Murphy has revealed more of his upcoming Netflix projects.
The American Horror Story creator signed a $300 million deal with the streaming service last year to develop a slate of original content.
In a recent interview with Time magazine, he confirmed that in addition to his upcoming high-school satire The Politician, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest prequel Ratched and musical Prom, five more films and TV series are currently in the works.
One is an adaptation of the classic Broadway musical A Chorus Line which explores the backstories and personal lives of dancers auditioning for a show.
Joining that will be a ten episode miniseries starring Ewan McGregor about famous American fashion designer Roy Halston who rose to fame in the 1970s and often hung out at Studio 54.
There will also be two docuseries, one charting the colourful life of pop culture icon Andy Warhol and Secret Love following a real-life lesbian couple who officially came out in their 80s.
Not yet titled is a biopic about the time classic Hollywood star Marlene Dietrich spent in Las Vegas during the 1960s with frequent collaborator Jessica Lange.
Lastly is Hollywood, set to premiere in May next year, which will “look at Hollywood and the sex industry, and how absolutely everything has changed and nothing has changed.”
Elsewhere on network TV, it was recently announced that the third season of his American Crime Story will revolve around the 1996 Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal.
The ninth season of American Horror Story will premiere here in the UK on September 19th.
