Leslie Jordan might be keeping the world entertained with his incredible video updates on Instagram, but you'll be pleased to know we'll be seeing plenty more of the pint-sized TV icon after lockdown is over.

That's because superstar producer Ryan Murphy - him of Glee, American Horror Story, Pose, American Crime Story, Feud and Hollywood fame - has revealed that he is currently penning a new TV series with former Will & Grace star Jordan in mind.

Taking to Instagram on Sunday (3 May), Murphy teased that he was working on a project for Jordan and another former AMerican Horror Story star Dylan McDermott.

"So yes it's TRUE I am writing a project for national treasures Leslie Jordan and Dylan McDermott to star in together", Murphy wrote as he shared a picture of the actors.

"Should it be a romance? A buddy comedy? A heist movie? All I know is Leslie is going to be fabulously wealthy in it, and Dylan will have a backstory as a former masseur".

Wherever it's going, we know it's somewhere good.
