Ryan Murphy on Emmy Category Confusion: Let the Creators Decide

Ryan Murphy on Emmy Category Confusion: Let the Creators Decide
What’s a comedy? What’s a drama? The debate over which category to submit shows continues, as 30-minute dramas and hour-long comedies defy the Television Academy’s rules. Now, megaproducer Ryan Murphy has weighed in, and telling IndieWire that he thinks it should ultimately depend on the intent of the series creator.

“I’ve always believed that a show should be whatever the creator says it was created for,” he said. “If they say it’s a comedy or drama, that’s up to them. ‘Glee’ had that, we always went as a comedy because of the musical element. It was seen as light.”

When in doubt, the Television Academy usually does side with producer intent. But it has added more guidelines in recent years to avoid networks and studios attempting to game the system by placing shows in less competitive categories. That led to a rule clarification in 2015 that half-hour shows be deemed “comedies” and hour-long shows compete as dramas.

Ryan Murphy Is Planning a #MeToo Anthology Series In the Style of ‘Black Mirror’

Ryan Murphy Is Planning a #MeToo Anthology Series In the Style of ‘Black Mirror’
The most prolific showrunner in Hollywood is never at a loss for ideas, and Ryan Murphy’s newly-inked Netflix deal has birthed one of his boldest yet. In a new profile by The New Yorker‘s Emily Nussbaum, Murphy revealed he has been mulling an anthology series inspired by #MeToo. Tentatively titled “Consent,” the series would operate like “Black Mirror,” with a different creator and story each episode. Topics covered would include an “insidery account of The Weinstein Company,” Kevin Spacey, and “an ambiguous he-said-she-said encounter.”

While Murphy is known for anthology series like “American Horror Story,” “American Crime Story,” and “Feud,” which change settings and stories every season, this would be the first series that did so per episode. The “Consent” idea comes along as Murphy recently tabled a fourth season of “American Crime Story” about Monica Lewinsky. According to Nussbaum: “After running into Monica Lewinsky at an Oscars party,

Olivia de Havilland Takes Another Crack at That ‘Feud’ Lawsuit

Olivia de Havilland Takes Another Crack at That ‘Feud’ Lawsuit
Gotta give Olivia de Havilland credit on one front, at least — she’s tenacious.

Gone With the Wind” star de Havilland, 101, is taking another shot at her lawsuit against FX over her portrayal in the FX offering “Feud,” filing a petition asking the California Supreme Court to review an appeals court’s opinion.

De Havilland initially filed suit against FX in June 2017, alleging that her identity was used without her authorization in the FX series, and that the actress, who was portrayed by Catherine Zeta-Jones in the miniseries, was placed in a false light.

Olivia de Havilland Looks to Revive ‘Feud’ Defamation Suit

Olivia de Havilland Looks to Revive ‘Feud’ Defamation Suit
Olivia de Havilland has asked the Supreme Court of California to review a decision by a lower court throwing out her lawsuit against FX Networks.

In March, a three-judge panel of the state appeals court tossed out de Havilland’s defamation suit, in which the actress claimed that the miniseries “Feud” included a damaging portrayal of her. The decision by the appeals court was viewed as an affirmation of the right of filmmakers to embellish the historical record.

“Whether a person portrayed in one of these expressive works is a world-renowned film star — ‘a living legend’ — or a person no one knows,

Fox Searchlight Enters the TV Business, and Potentially a New Turf War Inside 21st Century Fox

  • Indiewire
As Disney and 21st Century Fox approach the merger of their production assets, Fox has one more opportunity for infighting with the announcement of Searchlight Television, a new division of Fox Searchlight Pictures that will develop for broadcast, cable, and streaming.

David Greenbaum and Matthew Greenfield have been promoted to presidents of production for film and television, effective immediately. Searchlight Television said it would develop “scripted series, limited series, documentaries and more.”

However, about that timing. Once the Disney/Fox merger is consummated, 21st Century Fox employees will be in a state of wait and see. The future for all Fox content producers — Fox Searchlight, 20th Century Fox Film, 20th Century Fox TV — is unclear.

This also creates more TV production competition inside 21st Century Fox. Searchlight Television won’t fall under the domain of Fox Television Group chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman, whose oversight includes the Fox network,
