    In a recent interview with Time Magazine, Ryan Murphy revealed that he has several more projects in the works at Netflix. One of them is a ten-part miniseries adaptation of A Chorus Line.

    This would mark the second time that the 1975 award-winning Broadway musical has been adapted for the screen following the 1985 Oscar nominated Richard Attenborough film which was a huge flop both with critics and at the box office.

    I don’t think this material is going to stretch out into a 10-part series very well.

    If Lea can’t land the Cassie role, then she might wanna just call it a day…

    In a recent interview with Deadline Hollywood, Ryan Murphy talked about his plans for this show.
    https://deadline.com/2020/11/ryan-murphy-the-prom-broadway-covid-chorus-line-netflixus-line-as-a-limited-series-the-deadline-interview-1234613074/

    DEADLINE: Did you say you are doing a new film version of A Chorus Line? The original movie was not a critical or commercial hit.

    MURPHY: Yeah. We’re trying a different approach with that, which we’re trying to do A Chorus Line as a limited series for Netflix. My favorite Broadway director of all time, producer, whatever, is Michael Bennett. So, it’s going to be A Chorus Line with all that wonderful music, but also the idea of how did he make A Chorus Line? And the thing that I was always very fascinated by, he did it for the love of the craft, and he took out a little office in Times Square and he took gypsies into those rooms and said tell me about your lives, and from those interview sessions came the music, and so I got the rights to all of those interviews. I have all of those tapes. I have all of that material about how was ‘What I Did For Love’, what is that about? How was ‘Dance: Ten, Looks: Three?’ So that’s a very interesting process that I’m going to start working on next year.

    Wasn’t sure about this being a miniseries, but now that I know it’s about the making of A Chorus Line rather than some kind of extended version of the show, I’m interested.

    Hoping Murphy casts experienced dancers. What I’d really like is after the whole making of thing ends, if the final episode could be a the musical in its entirety.
