Sundry genres tingle shingle

International Emmys 2012

Horror, comedy, musicals, reality – is there any genre Ryan Murphy doesn’t have a digit in?

The prolific and eclectic Murphy has four successful television series — “Glee” (Fox), “The Glee Project,” (Oxygen), “American Horror Story” (FX) and “The New Normal” (NBC). Now, Ryan Murphy Television, based at 20th Century Fox, is moving forward with projects with other writers this year, recently selling two series to network.

“Apollo 18” writer Brian Miller is working on a drama for Fox centering on the government conspiracy in the town of Montauk, New York. The Montauk Project allegedly dabbled in psychological warfare and sci-fiesque concepts such as time travel. Miller and Murphy are also working on a Sony sci-fi/horror feature film.

The second project, sold to NBC, is an untitled comedy from Matt Spicer and Max Winkler.

“We don’t develop a lot, and we are very selective on what we work on,” says Ryan Murphy Television prexy Dante Di Loreto. “We are having a great time making halfhour comedy for NBC, so when we (got into business with this) terrific pair of young creators, it was a natural fit.”

Murphy is also prepping the feature film “The Normal Heart,” which he will direct. It stars Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer and Mark Ruffalo and begins filming next year.
