Ryan Murphy’s Sprawling TV Empire Ranked by Tomatometer

What do you do when you’ve conquered the worlds of network and cable TV, won a slew of awards for your efforts, and become one of the few household-name showrunners in the country? Sign on with Netflix, of course. Which is exactly what television super-producer Ryan Murphy and his company Ryan Murphy Productions have done, signing a deal to produce original series and films with the streaming service. The overall deal reportedly may be worth as much as $300 million.

“The history of this moment is not lost on me,” Murphy said in a statement. “I am a gay kid from Indiana who moved to Hollywood in 1989 with $55 dollars in savings in my pocket, so the fact that my dreams have crystallized and come true in such a major way is emotional and overwhelming to me.”

Murphy, whose series 9-1-1 (Fox) and American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace (FX) are currently airing, has two original series in the works for Netflix: Ratched, starring longtime collaborator Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story), tells the origin story of Nurse Ratched from classic film One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, while The Politician is a political satire that stars Ben Platt (Pitch Perfect). He also has both a second season of Feud, about Princess Diana and Prince Charles, and musical-drama series Pose in the works for FX.

The producer, writer, and showrunner has been hugely influential in the medium, inspiring a resurgence in TV musicals with his high-school set series Glee, unleashing a flood of anthology projects with American Horror Story, and gathering an informal troupe of fiercely loyal top acting talent, including Paulson, who won an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie for American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.
