Richard Lawler

Refusing to slow its pace of dealmaking, Netflix announced tonight that it has a new "multi-year" agreement with producer Ryan Murphy, starting in July. Murphy has produced a string of hit series over the years, including Glee, Nip/Tuck, American Horror Story and Scream Queens. His contract with Fox is about to expire, and according to reports from the New York Times and Deadline, this began a bidding war that put the price of his five-year agreement at as much as $300 million.
