How many scripted series can one man shepherd at the same time? For Ryan Murphy, at least, the answer may soon be “four.” EW has confirmed that the mastermind behind Glee, American Horror Story, and The New Normal has sold yet another pilot: Open, a “modern, provocative exploration of human sexuality and relationships” co-written with Dexter co-executive producer Lauren Gussis. HBO has ordered the pilot; Deadline first reported the sale Wednesday night.

This marks the cable net’s second project with Murphy. His TV movie adaptation of Larry Kramer’s play The Normal Heart will premiere in 2014, the same year that could also see the third installment of AHS (subtitled Coven), the fifth of Glee, and the second of The New Normal, assuming the latter two are picked up for additional seasons.
