Leslie Jordan, Dylan McDermott Get Romantic in New Ryan Murphy Show

Jordan McDermott

Ryan Murphy may have been feeling randy on Sunday evening — or indulged in some quarantine cocktails — because he playfully teased fans about a show he's writing for two of his favorite actors.

Murphy posted on Instagram that he's writing a show for Leslie Jordan, Will & Grace icon and gay pandemic superstar, and Dylan McDermott, the ageless beefcake from the first American Horror Story (and not to be confused with Dermot Mulroney of My Best Friend's Wedding).

"So yes it's TRUE I am writing a project for national treasures Leslie Jordan and Dylan McDermott to star in together," Murphy posted. "Should it be a romance? A buddy comedy? A heist movie? All I know is Leslie is going to be fabulously wealthy in it, and Dylan will have a backstory as a former masseur."

McDermott not only helped kick off AHS, he appeared in several iterations of the show, as well as The Politician and the currently-airing Hollywood, both from the mind of Murphy. Jordan has also been a fixture of AHS, appearing in the Coven, Roanoke, and 1984 seasons.

Don't expect to soon see Jordan swanning about a mansion while McDermott oils himself up. Hollywood has pretty much stopped filming amid the ongoing pandemic and Murphy already has plenty of projects in the works, including a Billie Lourd project, a production of Boys in the Band, and a TV show about an evil nurse, co-starring Sarah Paulson, Judy Davis, Cynthia Nixon, Sharon Stone, Rosanna Arquette, and Amanda Plummer.
