Alexis Martin Woodall came to LA with ambitions of making it in the movie business, and like many Hollywood dreamers, she worked as a waitress until she landed a job.
She started out as a post-production assistant on Ryan Murphy’s Nip/Tuck and has since risen through the ranks to become president of Ryan Murphy Productions and an executive producer on some of the most inspiring and creative shows in television history. She has garnered two Golden Globes® and 12 Emmy® nominations for her work on Pose, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, FEUD: Bette and Joan, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, American Horror Story and Glee.
In 2014, she won her first Emmy as a member of the producing team on Ryan Murphy’s widely-acclaimed adaptation of Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart for HBO. She repeated that honor in 2016, winning her second Emmy for The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, and most recently in 2018, she won her third for The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. Woodall executive produces across all Ryan Murphy Television projects and is looking forward to the upcoming slate, including The Politician, Hollywood, The Prom and The Boys in the Band.
Fun fact: Woodall also owns restaurant Red Herring with her husband Dave, and lives for a little shoulder shimmy.
