‘American Horror Story’s’ Ryan Murphy sells new drama ‘Open’ to HBO

HBOBased on the news coming out now, it is possible that Ryan Murphy could soon practically own just about all of television. “Glee” is surely coming back for season 5 (though Murphy is still in talks with Fox over it), “American Horror Story” has already been renewed, and the fate both both “The New Normal” and “The Glee Project” are both still up in the air.

Now, Murphy has managed to land another project on HBO to go along with his upcoming movie adaptation of “The Normal Heart.” It was confirmed on Wednesday that Murphy, along with “Dexter’s” Lauren Gussis and his fellow “American Horror Story” producer Dante Di Loreto, are going to have their new sexuality-themed project “Open” air on the network. This is not the first time that Murphy has tried to create a new TV series on the subject of sexuality, as he developed the pilot “Pretty / Handsome” for FX that never came to fruition several years ago.

“Open” ended on HBO after a bidding war between multiple networks, and production is going to be tracking fast in order for the show to kick-start production this fall. We’re still not entirely sure how Murphy is going to be able to balance all of these shows, but we guess it is really going to be all about delegating and making sure that all the ducks are in a row with every project that he has.

There’s no announced premiere date for this show just yet, but so long as it is produced and everything goes off without a hitch, we anticipate “Open” being on the air at some point next year.  What do you think about the idea behind this show?
