UPDATE: Turns out it’s not THE Ryan Murphy, but another one who just wrote an episode of Stan Against Evil, and that’s pretty much all. Less exciting suddenly. Sorry for the mix-up.

In a surprising and unusual move, Ryan Murphy is developing a show outside of his 20th Century FOX rich overall deal about the Bermuda Triangle mystery for NBCUniversal…

Some may remember the 2005 three-part miniseries The Triangle starring Sam Neil & Eric Stoltz, a coproduction between SyFy & the BBC, or the excellent The X-Files episode (season 6, episode 3). NBC is now taking their stab at the cult mystery with overarchiever Ryan Murphy, already behind American Horror Story, American Crime Story (two editions are coming in 2017) & upcoming Feud (while Scream Queens should be cancelled). He’s developing his own version with Guy Busick (Desire), which he will produce alongside Brooke Kennedy (The Good Wife, Fringe, Braindead) & Andrew Stearn (Gypsy, Shameless US, Animal Kingdom, SouthLAnd). The project is partly based in the UK with Working Title Television, Ryan Murphy Productions & NBCUniversal International Studios working side by side.

Triangle is centered around ex-lovers Wes Fallon and Marti Estevez, who are under the authority of the US government, investigating the bizarre phenomena associated with the Bermuda Triangle while searching for clues to the fate of Wes’s brother and Marti’s new husband, Tom Fallon, who mysteriously disappeared there… There’s definitely a X-Files vibe in there!

    You’re thinking of the wrong Ryan Murphy. He and Busick are writing partners, and they are staff writers on Stan Against Evil (fantastic show, check it out if you haven’t got the chance).
