    This could be huge.

    “Not content with owning airwaves on Fox and FX, Ryan Murphy is expanding his reach to Netflix once again. A source told E! News Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan have sold The Politician, a musical political comedy starring Ben Platt, to Netflix with a two-season order. Murphy currently has Ratched, the One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Next prequel starring Sarah Paulson, also in the works with the streaming giant.

    The Politician, according to reports, centers on the Dear Evan Hansen star as Payton, a wealthy man with political ambitions. Each season will see the character in a new race with plenty of musical numbers. Sound appealing? Wait, there’s more: Barbra Streisand and Gwyneth Paltrow are also in talks to star.

    “I’ve been anxiously waiting to share this news with the world. Life, and @MrRPMurphy, are but a dream. We’re gonna knock your socks off. See you on @netflix,” Platt tweeted.

    Deadline, which first broke the news, reports Murphy will direct the pilot and Streisand could step behind the camera to helm episodes of the series as well. Netflix declined to comment on the reports.

    Murphy, Falchuk and Brennan created Glee together. Oscar winner Paltrow is engaged to Falchuk and previously appeared on Glee. Her guest appearance got her an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. Platt, who previously appeared in the Pitch Perfect movies, won a Grammy and a Tony for the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen. Streisand, who has two Oscars, 10 Grammys, five Emmys and a special Tony, previously teamed with Netflix for Barbra: The Music…The Mem’ries…The Magic!, a concert documentary.”

    Queenbee, you should probably change the title of this thread, since Barbra Streisand isn’t part of the cast anymore.

    You’re right, though check her last login date. I suppose moderaters are able to change thread names.

    How is this arrogant, Snakeoil Saleswoman still getting work like this? Give better and humble actresses a chance! Im not watching anything starring Paltrow!

    The first trailer is out. I had the idea this was going to be a semi-musical? If so, that is not indicated in the trailer.

    Not really sure what to think about this, but it looks like we’ll be getting some full-on crazy Lange action. Love me some Ben Platt (his Evan Hansen was a stage performance for the ages), so I’ll watch for that. Also curious about January Jones’s role in the show.

    This gives the Good Place type of vibes so I’m not that confident with it getting in major categories, except Lead Actor

    This looks so good. Is it not a musical anymore though?
