Murphy plans to create more LGBTQ content for Netflix.

You'd think that Ryan Murphy would be a bit busy to be working on another TV show -- between American Horror Story, American Crime Story, 9-1-1, Feud and the upcoming Pose --but his approach to programming has always been "more is more," so it's perhaps not surprisingly to know he already has his sights set on a new series. Murphy is putting together a new anthology series that will tackle the #MeToo movement and sexual misconduct in the industry.

In a profile with the New Yorker, Murphy revealed he's working on a show tentatively titled Consent -- a bit on the nose, but that is Murphy's brand, after all. Tied to his new deal with Netflix, the show "would follow a Black Mirror model: every episode would explore a different story, starting with an insidery account of the Weinstein Company. There would be an episode about Kevin Spacey, one about an ambiguous he-said-she-said encounter. Each episode could have a different creator."

Murphy also revealed that, in an attempt to beef up Netflix's LGBTQ offerings, his new content pool for the streaming service could also include "a glossy gay soap opera...in the tradition of The L Word."
