In an interview with Time magazine, Ryan Murphy unveiled his forthcoming slate of projects as part of his $300 million overall deal with Netflix. 

The prolific producer confirmed that he is working on an adaptation of the iconic Broadway musical A Chorus Line. The 10-part mini-series will reimagine the behind-the-scenes look at a group of Broadway dancers for the small screen. 

In the interview, Murphy also revealed he’s also working on a limited drama about designer Halston, with Ewan McGregor set to play the titular character as well as a 10-part documentary series about artist Andy Warhol. 

Murphy also divulged that Patti LuPone has joined Holland Taylor in Hollywood — Murphy’s first original series for the streaming giant. The series, Murphy says, will ”look at Hollywood and the sex industry, and how absolutely everything has changed and nothing has changed.”

Murphy moved his overall deal from 20th Century Fox TV to Netflix in early 2018.
