“From poignant reality-based movies to dark and twisted horror to musical theater, Ryan Murphy’s creativity knows no bounds,” said Joey Berlin, BTJA president. “It is a privilege to be able to recognize the incredible talent and breadth of work that he has developed for television viewers thus far in his career, and we look forward to seeing what lies ahead.”

The BTJA will also honor seven shows with the title of “Most Exciting New Series” this year: CBS and Steven Spielberg’s “Extant,” starring Halle Berry; Fox’s “Gotham,” the Batman prequel series starring Ben McKenzie; “Halt and Catch Fire,” AMC’s new period drama centered around the rise of the PC; “The Leftovers,” adapted by Damon Lindelof for HBO from Tom Perrotta’s bestselling novel; Starz’s “Outlander,” an epic time-travel romance adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling book series; “Penny Dreadful,” Showime’s gothic horror piece from John Logan; and “The Strain,” a vampire thriller from Carlton Cuse and Guillermo del Toro.
