Burning questions: What Ryan Murphy's Netflix deal means for you  1 Week ago

Source: USA Today  

Seven months after Netflix nabbed mega-producer Shonda Rhimes, the streaming giant has lured the equally prolific Ryan Murphy from his longtime home at 20th Century Fox. 

Are all of his shows moving to Netflix now?

No. His current series will continue airing as long as  their networks  renew them. Here's a list and their current status:

Which shows will be on Netflix?

Any new shows he creates after July 1 will be developed through Netflix.

What happens to the shows that are already on Netflix? 

Disney has already announced plans to remove content from Netflix in 2019, in anticipation of creating its own streaming service. The shows could also be parked at Netflix rival Hulu, which Disney will control if it buys Fox.

Why is Murphy leaving Fox?

Disney's plan to acquire Fox likely played a role. During the Television Critics Association's winter press tour in January, Murphy expressed trepidation over what a Disney-owned Fox might mean for his edgy shows.

The pending deal also leaves uncertain the future of his biggest champion at Fox Television Group, chairman-CEO Dana Walden, who might bolt when the network and studio she oversees are split.  

What does Murphy get out of this deal?

Even more freedom than he now gets. Since Netflix is subscriber-funded, he won't have to worry about network censors, alienating advertisers, or getting notes from Disney  minders. His shows will be available worldwide, simultaneously, on Netflix's global streaming service.
