In an interview with Time magazine, Ryan Murphy announced a slate of projects he has in the works under his $300 million overall deal with Netflix, which include original and documentary series.

And boy, it’s A LOT. 

Murphy is working on a small-screen adaptation of the 1976 Broadway musical A Chorus Line. The 10-part mini-series will retell the iconic story that gives a behind-the-scenes look at a group of Broadway dancers. 

Murphy also revealed he’s working on a limited drama about Halston, the famed fashion designer. He also confirmed that Ewan McGregor will play the protagonist.

And there’s also something for Jessica Lange fans — the two are also working on a project that will feature Murphy’s American Horror Story leading lady.

“Jessica Lange and I are working on a piece about Marlene Dietrich in Vegas in the early ’60s,” he told the outlet. “But I’m so booked. When am I going to do it? I don’t know.” 

He also divulged that that Patti LuPone boarded Hollywood, his first original series for the streaming giant. The series 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.
