Ryan Murphy has a huge slate of new projects coming to Netflix, including a newly-announced miniseries adaptation of A Chorus Line.
Ryan Murphy is bringing us a ton of new shows in his sprawling Netflix deal, but he’s been slowly revealing what we can expect to see in the coming months. He’s finally let the beans spill on one of his new shows, and it’s likely to delight musical theater fans.
Murphy plans to bring the iconic musical A Chorus Line to Netflix. As he explained in an interview with Time, he’ll turn the musical that is around 2 hours long into a 10-episode miniseries. For now, there’s no news on casting, but knowing Murphy’s style, we’ll probably see some familiar faces that we’ve seen in other Ryan Murphy shows.
Of course, this is the second musical that Murphy is bringing to Netflix. He’s also adapting the musical The Prom into a feature-length musical starring Meryl Streep.
Murphy also explained to Time that he’s working on a miniseries about Halston, the ground-breaking fashion designer. Ewan McGregor is slated to play the title role.
His star-studded slate doesn’t end there. In addition to previously announced projects, he’ll be working with Jessica Lange on a project about Marlene Dietrich in Las Vegas in the ’60s, Sarah Paulson will be heading up his prequel to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Ratchet, and Patti LuPone and Holland Taylor will star in Hollywood, an unflinching look at Hollywood and the sex industry.
In addition to his new shows and movies, Ryan Murphy will also be bringing us a couple of documentaries. Murphy told Time he’s working on a docuseries about Andy Warhol (who he brought to life briefly in American Horror Story: Cult, played by Evan Peters), as well as telling the story of a real-life lesbian couple who came out in the ’80s after hiding their true selves, called A Secret Love.
There is a lot to be excited about for Ryan Murphy fans, and we are so ready to check out his slate of new projects. We’ll keep you posted here as more news breaks on Murphy’s Netflix projects.
