“Glee” creator Ryan Murphy is launching a foundation to help combat the diversity issue in Hollywood.

The producer’s new initiative, Half, which he has set up with partners at his company Ryan Murphy Productions, will make sure at least 50 per cent of the directors on his shows, including “Scream Queens”, “American Crime Story” and “American Horror Story”, will either be women or minorities by the end of 2016, said the Hollywood Reporter.

“I personally can do better,” he said in an interview in which he reveals plans to help make Hollywood more inclusive.

Murphy, 50, also plans to begin visiting college campuses around the US to recruit students for mentoring programmes and internships in Hollywood.

“The industry has always been about, you come to us. There’s not a lot of effort and inclusion, and I’m saying, ‘No, we’re going to go to you’,” he added.
