When Glee heads to the television graveyard next year, Ryan Murphy won’t necessarily be parting ways with FOX. Deadline reports that Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan are bringing a new comedy-horror series to the network.

Murphy clearly has a hard-on for all things scary. The news comes on the heels of FX announcing a new American Horror Story companion series called American Crime Story.

Much like his popular spooky FX series, Scream Queens will be an anthology with each season taking place in different locations and different plots. The first season featuring two female leads is set to debut in Fall 2015 with 15 episodes. Read below Murphy explaining his new show’s concept and his excitement for his new project.

“We loved every element of the pitch for this show — the genre-bending concept, which blends true horror with big comedic moments; the diverse and unforgettable characters and reuniting the phenomenal creative team that delivered Glee,” FOX said, adding that the straight-to-series order is “a huge commitment and an expression of our faith in Ryan.”

FX has only aired one episode of the latest season of American Horror Story, but it’s already renewed it for a fifth season. Not surprising given that Freak Show set a record as the most-watched TV episode in the network’s history. It generated 10 million total viewers (6.54 million 18-49), according to Live+3 numbers, besting Coven‘s numbers last year of 7.27 million by 38 percent.

Ryan Murphy teased he planted clues for Season 5′s theme in the first two episodes of Freak Show. Some fans predict it could revolve around aliens given this year’s locale of Jupiter and Jessica Lange’s character’s last name of Mars. Do you have any theories?

Speaking of Lange, she previously stated the fourth installment of the popular FX anthology would be her last. Murphy recently revealed he’s hopefully he could convince Jessica to change her tune. Would the show be the same without Lange? Sound off below.

If you mashed up all the season of American Horror Story- Murder House, Asylum, Coven and Freak Show, it could easily sum up O.J. Simpson’s life during the 90s. FX just announced an American Horror Story companion series focusing on the media circus that was the O.J. Simpson trial.

Titled American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, the 10-episode series will be based on Jeffrey Toobin‘s book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson. It will give the perspective from the lawyers on both sides of the trial and race relations during that time.

“This is an exciting project for me, as I’ve been looking for the right property which could serve as an extension of the American Horror Story brand I love so much. The O.J. case was as tragic as it was fascinating– it seemed like everyone had a stake in the outcome. It was really the beginning of the modern tabloid age,” Ryan said in a statement.

Believe it or not, someone said ‘no’ to Ryan Murphy. Even more shocking, it’s HBO. Definitely surprising given their recent successful and critically-acclaimed collaboration with The Normal Heart. The network revealed it opted out of Murphy’s sexually-charged drama, Open.

“After such a triumphant collaboration with The Normal Heart, everyone felt that Open was not the right next step for all involved,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said in a statement. “However, we fully expect to work together again in the near future.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter’s sources, HBO wanted to tweak the drama, but Murphy didn’t want to change the pilot. Open was described as “a multicharacter exploration of the complex, ever evolving landscape of sexuality, monogamy and intimacy in relationships.”

Adapting Larry Kramer’s masterpiece play, The Normal Heart, comes with heavy expectations. Based on the latest trailer for the HBO movie, Ryan Murphy handled the pressure well. The clip is chilling, powerful and emotional. Be sure to have a box of tissues handy when you watch it on May 25.

The Normal Heart tells the story of the early days of the AIDS epidemic in New York City during the early 80s. It charts the activism of writer and activist, Ned Weeks (Mark Ruffalo) who mounts a battle to raise awareness and organize for research and help. Julia Roberts plays wheelchair-bound Dr. Emma Brookner who warns the community of the looming epidemic. “You are all going to infect each other,” she sternly says in the trailer.

Rounding out the cast are Taylor Kitsch, Jim Parsons, Matt Bomer, Jonathan Groff, Alfred Molina and Denis O’Hare. It airs on May 25 on HBO at 9pm. Check out the trailer below.

For the past several years, Apple CEO Tim Cook was top dog on OUT Magazine’s annual Power 50 list. For the 2014 edition, the 53-year-old has to settle for the runner-up slot. Ellen DeGeneres has reclaimed the most powerful title from the publication. The daytime talk show host stood at numero uno back in 2010.

“Everybody loves Ellen, and that’s one of the reasons she’s regained the top spot,” OUT writes. The magazine also cites DeGeneres’ epic Oscar selfie which broke the record of most retweeted post ever and briefly crashed Twitter.

For the past eight years, the publication has ranked powerful and prestigious gay men and women who have tremendous influence. The list is compiled of Hollywood power players, publishing magnates, political figures, web entrepreneurs and everything in between. It’s worth nothing Ellen Page who came out recently makes the list for the first time at No. 29. Find out who the LGBT cream of the crop are below.
