Ryan Murphy Wants to Make a #MeToo Anthology Series
Ryan Murphy would love to make an anthology-style series inspired by the #MeToo movement, according to a new profile in The New Yorker.
The interview goes in-depth behind the talented producer’s big move to Netflix from FX, where he’d helmed such shows as American Horror Story and American Crime Story. With his new parent company, Murphy explained that he intends to create a show inspired by #MeToo where, “every episode would explore a different story, starting with an insidery account of the Weinstein Company.”
There would also be an episode about Kevin Spacey, and one about “an ambiguous he-said-she-said encounter.” Different directorial teams would take the reigns of each iteration of the anthology, which would be done in the tone of Black Mirror. The show’s working title is Consent.
In addition, Murphy talked about other possible programs he wants to get off the ground, mentioning he’s been “talking to Julianne Moore” and that he wants to work with Gwenyth Paltrow on a wellness-style show.
