Renowned for his work on Monster, American Horror Story, Glee and more, producer Ryan Murphy is reportedly preparing to leave for Disney once his five-year deal with Netflix is up. Does this jeopardize season 2 of Monster and The Watcher?
It seems that Ryan Murphy, the renowned American producer, screenwriter and director, could not (and did not want to) stay far away from 20th Television (before 20th Century Fox Tv), now from Disney. After all, murphy He had said when he worked in that studio that he would be buried in the lot of fox. Although now he continues with Netflixthe five-year contract with the streaming service is about to end and Disney He is already opening his arms for his return.
According to THR, Ryan Murphy, producer behind hits like Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, 911, Glee, American Horror Story, hopes to meet at Disney with Dana Waldenwith whom he worked closely when she ran what was then 20th Century FoxTV and he had a deal there. Waldenwho is apparently one of the closest friends of murphyis now co-chairman of Disney Entertainment.
The new pact with Disney is not yet closed, since the agreement of murphy with Netflix It doesn’t expire until the end of the month. Let’s remember that the producer left fox in 2018 for a $300 million contract with the streaming giant, becoming (along with shonda rimes) into one of the largest producers to sign on with the service. At that time, this change of company attracted attention, since murphy had made it clear that his “home” was 20th Century, mostly after saying he wanted to be buried there.
However, the first years of murphy in Netflix they weren’t that good. launched the series Hollywood, Halston, The Politician, Ratched and The Boys in the Band and the movie The Prom, but they did not have the expected results… until it arrived Dahmer and The Watcher, both programs (created by him together with his long-time collaborator Ian Brennan) that became huge hits for the service.
Yes ok ryan murphy had his contract with Netflixthe producer never stopped working on popular franchises to 20th. In addition to american horror story and 911, its production for 20th TV included the ongoing anthology FX’s American Crime Story, Pose and Feud. This particular arrangement had not liked the streaming giant very much, since at first it seemed that it only favored 20th Century. This would have gotten worse when murphy announced in 2021 that it would produce the spin-offs American Sports Story and American Love Story for Disney.
So now what ryan murphy apparently returns home with John Landgraf, President of fx with whom he also had a close creative relationship for a long time, what will happen to the series of Netflix They have a second season. Everything points to that murphy will continue to produce for netflix monster (with a story focused on the Menéndez brothers) and The Watcher, while working on Disney. So there would be no need to worry about the continuation of these programs.
So far the terms of negotiation between those involved are kept secret, but we assume that it will not be long before we find out more details.
