Ryan Murphy: "I'm not interested in shock value anymore"
Murphy is moving to Netflix with a new philosophy for his shows. The uber producer behind graphic shows like Nip/Tuck and American Horror Story says he's done shocking viewers. "I'm not interested in shock value anymore," Murphy told Ronan Farrow Wednesday during a conversation for the Hollywood Radio & Television Society. "I've gotten away from sexuality and violence and how far I can push the envelope. I’m interested in a different thing now.” Thanks to FX's Pose, Murphy says he's been drawn to showrunning as "advocacy." “I’m so moved by it, and moved by them as a community,” Murphy says of Pose, featuring the largest-ever cast of transgender series regular actors. “They have struggled and have such difficult lives in so many ways. To be seen, particularly under the president we have, is an amazing gift in my life.”
