Writer / Director / Producer

Murphy grabbed headlines in 2017 when he left his longtime home at 20th Century Fox Television for an overall deal with Netflix valued at more than $100 million. He created countless hits for Fox and cable channel FX through his deal at 20th. Among the shows that etched him as a hitmaker were “American Horror Story,” “American Crime Story,” “9-1-1,” “Glee” and “Nip/Tuck.” The last new series covered under his deal at 20th will, ironically, be his first for Netflix — “Ratched,” starring Sarah Paulson, an origin story for the Nurse Ratched character in “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” He’s a longtime supporter of amfAR and recently announced that profits from his groundbreaking 1980s-set dance musical series”Pose” will go to trans and LGBTQ groups.
