The #MeToo and #Time'sUp movements have been some of the most influential movements of our age. Exposing the men in cinema and television that have sexually abused or harassed a woman, the #MeToo movement has laid Hollywood bare.

Now, at the wake of the movement, notable TV showrunner Ryan Murphy hopes to display his own take on the #MeToo phenomenon by creating his own anthology series titled Consent.

According to The New Yorker, Murphy has expressed an interest in developing a new anthology series based on the #Time'sUp and #MeToo movement in the style of Netflix's gritty science fiction anthology series, Black Mirror. With each episode telling its own story, Murphy envisions a series that tackles the different cases of Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Louis C.K. and other names that have been involved in the movement.

Though the idea of Consent might seem rather ambitious, Murphy seems like the right person for the job. The showrunner has received a lot of praise for his diverse casting choices and for the strong characters he creates with women often taking center stage. His latest FX series Pose has broken records for its massive cast of performers from LGBTQ. Unafraid of tackling controversial issues, Murphy would be great for a TV series that deals with the #MeToo movement in Hollywood.
