Ryan Murphy’s move to Netflix has come with a new series order from the streamer. Murphy’s new show will be called Hollywood.
Ryan Murphy made big headlines when he decided to leave FX to move over to Netflix. The publicized move had fans dying to know what shows were in our future from the Glee and American Horror Story creator.
Netflix has officially ordered a new series from Murphy and his frequent collaborator Ian Brennan, which according to Deadline will be a “love letter to the Golden Age of Tinseltown” called Hollywood.
As a post on Murphy’s Instagram explains, the show will be his third announced project for the streaming service after Ratched and The Politician. Additionally, the show is set to begin principal photography this summer.

“Hollywood” — my new Netflix show co-created with Ian Brennan — begins principal photography this summer. A love letter to the Golden Age of Tinseltown, this straight-to-series production will be my third show for Netflix and I couldn’t be more excited or proud about the work we are doing together. More to come…
So what exactly can we expect from this show and who will be cast? Those details haven’t been released yet. While it is safe to assume that, like other Murphy shows, he’ll tap actors he’s used in his previous shows like Scream Queens, Glee, American Horror Story, and more, nothing has been confirmed.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Murphy has tapped into the Golden Age of Hollywood. In his series for FX, Fued: Betty and Joan, he highlighted one of the most infamous feuds between two major Hollywood stars and snagged several Emmy noms for the episode featuring the 1963 Academy Awards.
It’s unclear if Hollywood will focus on the stories of real actors like Betty and Joan did, or if it will follow a fictionalized character traversing the world of Hollywood in its Golden Age. Either way, this show is bound to be one you can’t miss, and we can’t wait to see what Murphy has in store for us.
