Ryan Murphy has set “Hollywood,” which he describes as “a love letter to the Golden Age of Tinseltown,” as his next Netflix series — and the first original to be ordered since the prolific producer signed his reported $300 million deal with the streamer last February.
“‘Hollywood’ — my new Netflix show co-created with Ian Brennan — begins principal photography this summer,” Murphy captioned an Instagram post of the Hollywood sign Friday. “A love letter to the Golden Age of Tinseltown, this straight-to-series production will be my third show for Netflix and I couldn’t be more excited or proud about the work we are doing together. More to come…”
Netflix did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for further details on the series, however their official See What’s Next Twitter account tweeted this, not long after Murphy’s Instagram post went up:

“Hollywood” marks the third project Murphy has going at Netflix, along with the Sarah Paulson-led “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” prequel series,”Ratched,” and the “The Politician,” a satire starring Ben Platt.
However, those two shows are produced by 20th Century Fox Television — Murphy’s old studio — and were picked up by the streamer before the “American Horror Story” creator left Fox for his pricey overall pact at Netflix.
