Since creating "Nip/Tuck," one of the first major original programming successes at FX, Murphy has created and produced a number of popular television series for Fox and FX. He currently oversees five shows at the two networks, "American Crime Story," "American Horror Story," "Feud," "9-1-1" and the upcoming "Pose," all of which will continue at their respective network homes.

Murphy said last month that he was personally in contact with Disney CEO Bob Iger and would weigh his options about whether to stay with the company should the deal go through.
