Ryan Murphy leaving Glee? New show premiering on HBO

Fox has not yet renewed Glee for a fifth season, for all 10 of you who still watch it and care. There are rumours that even if the show does come back for Season 5, it will be without its creator and executive producer, Ryan Murphy.

But Murphy isn’t hurting for work — it’s just been confirmed that his latest pilot, a sexually frank drama called Open about the relationships between five characters in their 30s, has been picked up by HBO. 

HBO is quickly becoming home for Murphy, whose passion project, the screen adaptation of Larry Kramer’s iconic play The Normal Heart, about the AIDS outbreak in the 1980s, will air on the network in 2014 and star Julia Roberts and Mark Ruffalo.
