Recently, Ryan Murphy signed a five-year-long contract with Netflix. It hasn’t even been that long and he is ready to release a show with a stellar cast. Also, what excites the fans, even more, is the fact that it is a musical show.
We haven’t ever come across a musical series on the streaming website, that’s why this news makes me even more excited. Once the cast for this show was released, the common public along with fans was in havoc. It is said that Ryan will produce and direct a musical based on the Tony-nominated stage musical called, The Prom.
Furthermore, the stellar cast has the likes of Meryl Streep, James Corden, Ariana Grande, Nicole Kidman, Keegan Michael Key, Awkwafina, and Andrew Rannells. Murphy has said that he will start the filming and production process in December of 2019.
This musical isn’t the only thing he has on his list, he will also be directing and producing three other projects in the coming years. Those projects will be called; The Politicians, Hollywood and Ratchet. Also, he will be making two documentaries and a movie.
Therefore, Meryl will be playing the role of Dee Dee Allen, Jame’s will be playing Barry Glickman along with her. Nicole will take on the role of Angie Dickinson and Andrew will play Trent Oliver. Above all, Grande is set for her role as Alyssa, Awkwafina as Ms. Sheldon. Keegan will be playing Meryl Streep’s love interest. Hence, all the roles are decided, all that’s left to do is the filming. Hopefully, we will get this gem soon!
