Ryan Murphy Spills The Tea On Working With The 'Relentlessly Homophobic' WB On His First TV Show! See What He Said!

Ryan Murphy is one of the biggest titans in television right now, and can pretty much get any show made exactly how he envisions it.

But that definitely wasn't the case over a decade ago, when the producer sold his first TV series to The WB (pre CW) and had an extremely "miserable experience"!

Before the days of Glee and American Horror Story, Murphy had pitched his high school dramedy series Popular — about an awkward high school girl forced to live with a popular cheerleader after their parents get engaged — to different networks and "ended up going with The WB."

Though the series became a cult hit after only two seasons from 1999 to 2001, the writer blames constant battles he had with network executives on the show's cancellation.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the 50-year-old said he wasn't a fan of working with the "relentlessly homophobic" executives who suggested he make his characters "less gay," confessing:

This is devastating.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Glee creator Ryan Murphy reflected on the show's rollercoaster six seasons, including Cory Monteith's untimely death from a drug overdose in July of 2013.

For those who don't know, Ryan was an instrumental part in Monteith entering rehab in March of 2013. The TV guy, along with the actor's then girlfriend Lea Michele, were his main pillars of support while he struggled with addiction.

Unfortunately, the star couldn't overcome his demons in the end.

Recalling the last time he saw Cory, Ryan revealed:

no title

After being the subject of the inaugural season of American Crime Story, the trial of O.J. Simpson has been reexamined like never before.

And with the 20-year-old trial back under the public microscope, many viewers are curious as to what happened behind-the-scenes of the historic court battle — specifically, between prosecutors Marcia Clark and Christopher Darden!

The two attorneys have always been suspected of hooking up during the trial — heck, even Ryan Murphy's crime anthology hinted at a romantic spark between the Emmy-winning characters played by Sarah Paulson and Sterling K. Brown.

However, after YEARS of speculation, the actual Darden is finally opening up about his relationship with the fellow attorney, telling Entertainment Tonight on Tuesday:

Scream Queens Scares Up Some Hollywood Royalty — John Stamos, Kirstie Alley, & Jerry O'Connell — For The Season 2 Premiere! Meet The Cast!

no title

***WARNING: Scream Queens Spoilers Ahead***

Welcome back, idiot hookers.

The inaugural season of Scream Queens wasn't quite the horror/camp-fest we were hoping it'd be… but it looks like Ryan Murphy is doing everything in his power to course correct for Season Two.

Luckily, that meant an hour of wall-to-wall entertainment on Tuesday night when FOX reopened the C.U.R.E Institute — much to the disdain of the Chanels!

Recap: American Horror Story: 6's Premiere Is A Total Nightmare!

While a majority of the episode was dedicated to reintroducing us to Keke Palmer, Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Abigail Breslin, and Billie Lourd's already iconic characters in their new, sterile environment… the welcomed additions to the cast certainly made the most of their debut.

But we're not just talking random up-and-comers — no, American Horror Story: Kids somehow managed to attract Hollywood royalty like John Stamos, Kirstie Alley, Jerry O'Connell, Taylor Lautner, Laura Bell Bundy, and Cecily Strong for the premiere… it's just too bad not everyone could survive the night!

We guess the Green Meanie is just as bloodthirsty as the Red Devil!!

Plus, we even got some specialized commercials thanks to Lady GaGa unveiling her Perfect Illusion music video even if we had mixed feelings about it.

So, without further ado…

American Horror Story's Season 6 Premiere Was A Total Nightmare! Get Our Full Recap!

no title

In an unprecedented move, Ryan Murphy held off on announcing the theme to season 6 of American Horror Story until the premiere… And now we know why!

Because after watching Wednesday night's season premiere of the horror anthology, we were left frightened, intrigued, and mostly confused!

[SPOILERS AHEAD]

The episode started with the ominous warning "Inspired by true events," setting up the season's dual timelines with two sets of actors — one with sit down interviews for a true crime style documentary, and the other in the not-so-distant past retelling what happened.

The season centers around a friendly couple — yoga teacher Shelby and pharmaceutical salesman Matt — who move to Roanoke, North Carolina.

Lily Rabe plays the "real" Shelby in the sit down interview, while Sarah Paulson plays her in the reenacted timeline. André Holland plays present-day Matt, while Cuba Gooding Jr. portrays him the flashback.

Will this storytelling device pay off — perhaps giving us two unreliable narrators — or is Ryan Murphy just paying homage to paranormal reenactment shows? We don't have the answer yet, but we do know the title of this season is
