Writer and producer Ryan Murphy will be bringing some new twists to streaming television in his upcoming multi-project deal with Netflix. Broadway nerds will be happy to learn that another musical television show is on the way with a ten-part series of A Chorus Line. Murphy previously announced that the Broadway hit Prom would soon be coming to Netflix as well.

Stage legend Patti Lapone will part of another upcoming Murphy series called Hollywood. Along with Holland Taylor (The Practice, Two and a Half Men), Lupone will star in a story about the history of the sex industry in Hollywood.

Ewan McGregor, famous for his portrayal of Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars movies, has also been added to a project. McGregor will be playing famous designer Roy Halston in an unnamed mini series scheduled for release in May of next year.

Amanda Brock

Amanda is a mental health counselor by day and a nerd by night. She’s been fangirling since 1989 when she had so many New Kids On The Block posters in her bedroom that she ran out of wall space and had to put them on her ceiling. She finds people and stories fascinating and even went to film school years ago. The journey from film to Social Work is a long, depressing tale, but she came out the other side feeling inspired to help people. Now she’s living out that old Hollywood cliché. You know, the one where someone can’t contain their passion any longer and leaves a career in entertainment to pursue their dreams of becoming a therapist in the Midwest. She’s not a filmmaker anymore but she is a fan. Her favorite genres are sci-fi, fantasy, superheroes, and musicals. She loves Supernatural, New Kids On The Block (duh), and comes from a family of Star Trek nerds. She might also be a little obsessed with her cats.
