The 7-episode limited series will launch May 1
After tackling high school politics, the next project from Ryan Murphy’s $300M deal with Netflix will go behind the curtain of Hollywood’s Golden Age.
Synopsis: A new limited series from Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, Hollywood follows a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers in post-World War II Hollywood as they try to make it in Tinseltown — no matter the cost.

Provocative and incisive, Hollywood exposes and examines decades-old power dynamics, and what the entertainment landscape might look like if they had been dismantled.
