Ryan Murphy has created a brand new Netflix series ‘Hollywood’ and the trailer has been released. The limited series will consist of seven episodes and is billed as a “love letter to Hollywood”. The series will follow a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers as they try to make it in a post-World War II Hollywood.
The series will highlight racism, sexism, homophobia and “decades-old power dynamics that are still prevalent in the entertainment industry today,” as ‘Gay Times’ report.
Speaking about the show, executive producer, writer and director Janet Mock said: “With the present so fraught and the future uncertain, we turned to the past for direction, uncovering buried history to spin an aspirational tale of what ifs.
“What if a band of outsiders were given a chance to tell their own story? What if the person to greenlight power was a woman? The screenwriter a black man? What if the heroine was a woman of color? The matinee idol openly gay?
“And what if they were all invited into the room where the decisions are made, entering fully and unapologetically themselves to leave victorious and vaunted, their place in history cemented?”
Hollywood stars will include David Corenswet (The Politician), Darren Criss (Glee), Jim Parsons, Joe Mantello (The Normal Heart), Dylan McDermott (American Horror Story) and Patti LuPone (Pose).
Samara Weaving (Ready or Not), Laura Harrier (BlacKkKlansman), Holland Taylor (Legally Blonde), Jake Picking (Horse Girl), Maude Apatow (Euphoria), and Mira Sorvino (Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion) also star.
