The Golden Age of Hollywood gets a major makeover with the new limited series from one of television’s biggest directing and producing icons, Ryan Murphy (Glee, American Crime Story, American Horror Story) with Ian Brennan as a part of Murphy’s massive deal with Netflix. The first trailer for Hollywood dropped today and does it ever look like glitzy, juicy fun.
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. Each character offers a unique glimpse behind the gilded curtain of Hollywood’s Golden Age, spotlighting the unfair systems and biases across race, gender and sexuality that continue to this day. Provocative and incisive, Hollywood exposes and examines decades-old power dynamics, and what the entertainment landscape might look like if they had been dismantled.
Hollywood stars David Corenswet, Darren Criss, Jeremy Pope, Laura Harrier, Samara Weaving, Dylan McDermott, Holland Taylor, Patti LuPone, Jim Parsons, Jake Picking, Joe Mantello, and Maude Apatow.
Hollywood launches May 1 exclusively on Netflix. Here is the trailer.
