Ryan Murphy is one of television’s most powerful creators. He has developed some of the most famous and boundary-breaking shows in his multi-decade career, including Glee (2009-2015), Pose (2018-2021), and American Horror Story (2011-2022).
Murphy’s American Story franchise, which also includes American Crime Story and American Horror Stories, contains American Horror Story. Many of the series have multiple seasons, indicating that the franchise is highly profitable. Ryan Murphy is always on the lookout for new project ideas, and he’s adding two new shows to his American Story franchise: American Love Story and American Sports Story.
Murphy is noted for his diverse casts that feature characters that aren’t typically given the spotlight. He told The Guardian that he couldn’t sell his scripts at first because people thought they were “too gay or too out-there.”
He did not, however, let negative comments or early failures deter him from pursuing his vision, which eventually culminated in his signature pieces with unusual ensembles. The 2003 TV series Nip/Tuck, a dark psychological comedy centered on the practice of plastic surgery, was instrumental in launching his successful career.
Following Glee, Scream Queens, Feud: Bette and Joan, American Horror Story, and American Crime Story, Murphy cemented his status as Hollywood’s most prominent showrunner. Murphy struck a $300 million agreement with Netflix in February 2018.
