Ryan Murphy recalls how a real-life 911 situation inspired Fox’s 9-1-1
“My son Ford was 11 months old (at the time), and in the middle of the night, stopped breathing,” Murphy said at the TV press tour. “We called 911, and obviously, we were in a panic and doing CPR. They showed up and at two in the morning, there were four responders. They were incredibly calm and nurturing, and they brought him back to life.” ALSO: Murphy considers 9-1-1 an antidote to the “really dark, cynical, Trump era.”

Fox’s 9-1-1 works because it brings Ryan Murphy’s outrageousness to a formulaic genre
“Like every other Ryan Murphy joint, from Glee to American Horror Story, 9-1-1 weirdly wins you over by being outrageously salacious,” says Jay Willis. “It brings a heavy dose of they did WHAT? to an extremely formulaic genre, counting on the fact that they can get you to forget about ordering food online the moment you see that holy sh*t, there really was a baby flushed down the toilet, are they gonna get it out on time?”
- 9-1-1 doesn’t feel like a Ryan Murphy show — the pilot feels like something from 10 or 15 years ago, and that’s a shame
- It’s compelling to see Murphy’s quirkiness on a mainstream “TV comfort food” kind of show
- The Murphy-Brad Falchuk machine delivers a “glossy sheen” that makes it hard to forget you’re watching a TV show
- 9-1-1’s cast of Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and Connie Britton is so overqualified that the show is hard to dismiss
- “All the cases in the show are like Nip/Tuck: 100 percent truth," says Murphy

A Canadian transgender sitcom is disputing that Ryan Murphy's Pose has the largest-ever transgender cast
Canadian comedy The Switch “got there first,” says creator Amy Fox, noting that her show's pilot premiered on TV in 2014 and was broadcast on Canada’s OUTtv in 2016. Like Pose, The Switch featured five “transgender/non-binary stars” plus other transgender supporting cast. “We wish to correct the record not because it's important who was first, but because it is necessary to recognize the vision and bravery of the earliest trailblazers in the nascent realm of scripted transgender content,” Fox says in a statement. ALSO: Watch Ryan Murphy’s trailer for Fox procedural 9-1-1, starring Connie Britton, Peter Krause and Angela Bassett.
