Netflix has finally released the trailer for the new limited series from Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, coming to Netflix on May 1.
Ryan Murphy does a fantastic job of showcasing the era of which he is in. I love the vibe from that timeframe of Hollywood. The trailer gives enough to you to suck you in but also leaves a lot of questions that will need to be answered.
Anything based on Hollywood in any format excites me. This TV show is no different. Very well done trailer. I can’t wait for May 1st.
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. 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 as Jack, Darren Criss as Raymond, Jeremy Pope as Archie, Laura Harrier as Camille, Samara Weaving as Claire, Dylan McDermott as Ernie, Holland Taylor as Ellen Kincaid, Patti LuPone as Avis, Jim Parsons as Henry Willson, Jake Picking as Rock Hudson, Joe Mantello as Dick, and Maude Apatow as Henrietta.
