Prolific writer-director-producer Ryan Murphy is on a mission: he has a lot of shows on FX-- American Crime Story, American Horror Story and his latest, Feud -- and he wants half the people working behind the camera to be women or minorities. He talks about the inspiration behind those efforts and his new series, Feud, the first season of which focuses on the bitter rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford on the set of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? He also explains why he's at work on series about Charles and Diana as well as Monica Lewinsky, and the 2016 election.
