Ryan Murphy. biography
Ryan Murphy was born on November 9, 1965, in Indianapolis, Indiana and first began using his writing skills with lifestyle-inspired articles for such publications as the Los Angeles Times.
Ryan then wrote and sold his first screenplay, Why Can’t I Be Audrey Hepburn, in the late 90s. Despite Steven Spielberg signing on as the director, the film was never made.
Ryan ignited his Hollywood writing career as both the creator and writer of the short-lived TV series Popular (1999-2001) prior to making a name for himself as the creator and writer of the hit TV series Nip/Tuck (2003-2010).
Although a successful start, Ryan got his big break when he created the popular TV series Glee (2009-2013), a show inspired by his time as a choir member and unpopular student during high school. The show’s success has since resulted in Ryan earning several prominent accolades, including the Writers Guild of America nomination for Comedy Series (2010/2011), the 2011 Emmy for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series and the AFI Award for TV Program of the Year (2010/2011).
Also around this time, Ryan expanded his popularity after creating the TV series American Horror Story (2011-2013), which earned him an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Miniseries or Movie in 2012. He then created the fleeting, but popular NBC TV series The New Normal (2012-2013).
Aside from writing, Ryan made his directorial debut in his TV series Popular (2001) before writing and directing the dramedy Running with Scissors (2006). He also directed as well as wrote the romance drama Eat Pray Love (2010) and most recently wrote the made-for-TV drama Open (2013).
