Murphy is a writer for the series along with Pose writer Janet Mock and Glee co-creator Ian Brennan. Mock will work as a director for the show after directing episodes of Pose and one episode of Murphy’s Netflix series,The Politician.
In 2018, Murphy reportedly signed a possible record five-year, $300 million deal with Netflix to produce content for the streaming service. A couple of months later that amount was beaten by Arrowverse producer, Greg Berlanti, and his reported four-year, $400 million deal with Warner Bros. TV, according to THR. It was later rumored that J.J. Abrams and his wife signed a five-year deal with WarnerMedia that Variety says could be worth $500 million, but other reports pin that number closer to $250 million.
The Best Netflix Original Movies and TV Shows
IGN’s review for The Politician calls the series, “tonally scattered but still enticing.” We recommend these Netflix originals instead. And Netflix users have a lot to look forward to in the third month of the year, with Castlevania Season 3, Ozark Season 3 and The Boss Baby: Back in Business Season 3 releasing on the service.
