Ryan Murphy Announces New Anthology Series Called Consent Inspired By The #MeToo Movement!
Ryan Murphy is just getting started talking about #MeToo — in fact, he’s currently putting together a new show inspired by the movement, tentatively titled├óΓé¼┬ª wait for it├óΓé¼┬ª Consent!
The prolific TV producer pitched the anthology series to The New Yorker in a recent profile, explaining that it would be set up in the model of Black Mirror and would explore a different case in each episode, starting with an insider’s account of The Weinstein Company.
Murphy added that there would also be an episode about Kevin Spacey, and a case that dealt with a vague he-said-she-said encounter. The only problem? Murphy hasn’t left FX just yet and his Netflix deal doesn’t official kick in until July — so the platform Consent lands on is still up in the air.
The producer also opened up about the downfalls of the cast members of his show Glee, noting the “sad” stories of Cory Monteith‘s heroin overdose, Mark Salling‘s child porn charges and suicide, and Naya Rivera‘s domestic battery charges were all inevitable Hollywood tragedies.
He told the publication:
“It’s sad, but it’s also Hollywood. Nobody comes here because they’re healthy. Nobody, nobody I know, was parented well who is a successful Hollywood person. Or who’s willing to endure that. You’re just trying to fill up some huge hole.”
Kinda sounds like something his Harvey Weinstein character would say to a journalist in the first episode of Consent…
