This means FX could potentially continue operating the way it has been for the last decade in the wake of the Disney acquisition. Mr. Murphy is now based at 21st Century Fox, which bid aggressively to retain his services as he has created many hits for both Fox Broadcasting and the FX cable channel.

Throughout his career, he has shown a penchant for taking the stuff of camp and making it popular.

After the Rhimes deal was announced, her agent, ICM Partners managing partner Chris Silbermann, used a sports analogy to describe the underlying factors that motivated Netflix to sign the creator of "Scandal" and "Grey's Anatomy" away from ABC Studios. Netflix, which began offering original programming in 2012, has said it will spend as much as $8 billion on content this year, and Apple has pledged at least $1 billion for original programming.

The news will be a boon to Netflix, which has invested heavily in content marketed at minority audiences including the LGBT community.

The upshot is that proven showrunners and big stars are in an enviable bargaining position.

It's been nearly a decade since Glee made Ryan Murphy a household name to a younger generation, and longer still since Nip/Tuck put him on our radar.

They also protect the glowing purple flower that gives the Black Panther his supernatural abilities - again for the same fears. But according to the theory, Shuri might be able to take out the mind stone from Vision's head making it available for Thanos.

Coleen Rooney shares first picture of baby son Cass
Weighing in at 8lb 10oz, Cass is the fourth child of Coleen and Wayne Rooney and is the youngest sibling of Kai, Klay and Kit . The 31-year-old is seen lying in bed with the baby wrapped up on her chest in the black and white snap, posted on Instagram.

Army officer picked up for questioning
Last week, Group Captain Arun Marwah of Indian Air Force was arrested on the charge of espionage from Delhi. Sources claimed that the Army officer has been trapped in a honey-trap case.

Murphy's contract starts July 1, with two shows already on the docket - The Politician, a social-political comedy, and Ratched, a Sarah Paulson-led origin story for Nurse Ratched from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

Murphy has been a bit ambivalent about working with FX after the company was purchased by Disney in December of past year. Murphy first rose to fame as the creator of the FX medical drama Nip/Tuck, and since then has bounced between Fox and the cable network with glib, borderline satirical teen series like Glee and Scream Queens and prestigious award-winning fare like American Crime Story, American Horror Story, and Feud.

But, in addition to the freedom it provides, the budgets that Netflix can give any creative are far outside of traditional TV.

Murphy's vast slate at Fox will not disappear overnight.

In 2011, Murphy changed the modern TV landscape by popularising the concept of anthology series with American Horror Story. In the meantime, feel free to read up on his thoughts on the Disney and Fox merger, what AHS is planning for Season 8 and why Murphy came up with the idea for 9-1-1. The upcoming FX show "Pose" has what FX is calling "the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles and the largest recurring LGBTQ cast ever for a scripted television series".
