Ryan Murphy is reportedly closing a new four-year $24 million deal with “Glee” producer 20th Century Fox TV for his work on the Fox series and new development through Ryan Murphy Productions, according to the story.
Murphy will get a share of profits from “Glee’s” music business and will receive a portion of touring and merchandising revenues.
He has an option to create a “Glee” Broadway musical, the story says.
The package could earn Murphy as much as $10 million a year over the next four years, according to the story.
