Television producer Ryan Murphy (Glee, American Horror Story, Scream Queens) has worked to put an emphasis on diversity in his shows, and he is now aiming to -- in his own words -- "do better" behind the camera as well.

The creator is launching a foundation within his 20th Century Fox-based production company called Half which, according to THR, “aims to have 50 percent of all director slots on his shows filled by women, people of color and members of the LGBT community and will begin outreach efforts at colleges to align candidates with mentors.”

In the video above or below Roth Cornet, Alicia Malone, and Miri Jedeikin dive into Murphy's initiative.
