Ryan Murphy cannot be stopped.
The Glee, American Horror Story and The New Normal mastermind (can I call him that?) has sold two more series, a family thriller to Fox and a comedy to NBC through his production company.
Fox has bought Montauk, which takes place in the Long Island town of Montauk (ahh, I see what he did there). It is described as a family thriller with a conspiracy element. Worth noting (possibly) is that the Air Force conducted a secret project with the intent of creating psychological warfare techniques and research, including time travel, on the island. The project was called the Montauk Project. Whether or not that plays a role in the series is unknown.
Murphy's other show is being kept under wraps for now, but was co-created by Matt Spicer and Max Winkler.
Murphy will executive produce both series, alongside Ryan Murphy Television president Dante Di Loreto, who also serves as a producer on Fox's Glee, NBC's The New Normal and FX's American Horror Story.
Slowly but surely, Murphy and Seth MacFarlane are taking over TV. In five years, every show will likely be developed by one of those two men. And the world will be a much sadder, less enjoyable place.
