FIRST LOOK: ‘Hollywood,’ Ryan Murphy’s upcoming limited series starring Darren Criss, Laura Harrier
MANILA, Philippines – The story of Hollywood’s golden age is getting a modern-day rewrite in the upcoming limited series Hollywood, from American Horror Story and The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story creator Ryan Murphy.
The show is set in post-World War II Hollywood as it follows the stories of aspiring actors and filmmakers, all willing to do whatever it takes to get their big break. With as much glamour as grit, the show examines Tinseltown’s power dynamics from a modern-day lens, highlighting the prejudices across race, gender, and sexuality that still plague the industry today.
The series will run for 7 episodes, and features a star-studded cast led by Darren Criss (who won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Versace's Andrew Cunanan in American Crime Story), Laura Harrier, David Corsenwet, Jeremy Pope, Samara Weaving, Patti LuPone, Holland Taylor, Jim Parsons, Queen Latifah and more.
Hollywood is set to premiere on Netflix on May 1. – Rappler.com
