Murphy’s Netflix Plans

Details of Ryan Murphy’s marriage with Netflix are starting to take shape.  There’s a new show called The Politician which debuts later this month and stars Ben PlattJessica Lange and Gwyneth Paltrow.  Speaking of Miss Lange, she will star in a series about the legendary Marlene Dietrich.  Ryan also plans lots of Broadway-centric shows, including the just-filmed The Boys in the Band starring the entire cast from last year’s Broadway hit, a film version of the Broadway musical The Prom starring Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep, and a miniseries about A Chorus Line.  There will be a limited series about designer Halston starring Ewan McGregor, and a docuseries about Andy Warhol.  Most tantalizing for me are two projects.  One is a series called Ratched starring Sarah Paulson in the origin story of the nurse from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.  Paulson’s real-life love, Holland Taylor, will join Patti LuPone for Hollywood, which explores Tinseltown’s relationship with the sex industry.  That series will also star Darren Criss, who is an executive producer, and is due to debut next May.
