First Look: Ewan McGregor as ‘Halston’ in new Netflix limited series set for May
“You’re only as good as the people you dress.” – Halston
On what would have been fashion designer Roy Halston Frowick’s 89th birthday, Netflix has revealed first look photos and the release date of its new limited series Halston, starring Ewan McGregor as the iconic designer and from the Ryan Murphy factory.
The limited series Halston follows the legendary fashion designer (Ewan McGregor), as he leverages his single, invented name into a worldwide fashion empire that’s synonymous with luxury, sex, status and fame, literally defining the era he lives in, 1970’s and ‘80’s New York — until a hostile takeover forces him to battle for control of his most precious asset… the name Halston itself.
The series also stars Krysta Rodriguez as Liza Minnelli, Rory Culkin as Joel Schumacher, Gian Franco Rodriguez as Victor Hugo, Bill Pullman and Vera Farmiga.
The series is executive produced by Ryan Murphy, Ian Brennan, Alexis Martin Woodall, Daniel Minahan, Ewan McGregor, Eric Kovtun, Sharr White, and Christine Vachon and Pamela Koffler of Killer Films. Minahan also serves as the series director.
