Ryan Murphy’s Hollywood set for May release

Reading time: 4 mins

Ryan Murphy’s Hollywood will arrive on Netflix this May, and a new poster teases a show that will rewrite the showbiz narrative piece by piece.

The third Netflix series from the Glee and American Horror Story creator – joining Ratched, based on the character from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and The Politician – Hollywood is the first out of the streaming ages for the prolific showrunner.

Described as “a love letter to the Golden Age of Tinseltown”, Murphy co-created the series with frequent collaborator Ian Brennan. It also reunites Murphy with American Crime Story and Glee alumnus Darren Criss, who both stars in the series and exec-produces it.

He leads a star-studded cast, including Jeremy Pope, David Corenswet, Holland Taylor, Samara Weaving, Dylan McDermott, Laura Harrier, Patti LuPone, Jake Picking, Jim Parsons, Maude Apatow, and Joe Mantellilo. There is no word on who they’re playing, but Netflix calls the show a “provocative and incisive limited series”.

Set in post-World War II Los Angeles, it asks what it would be like if you could rebuild the Hollywood narrative, which means you can expect it to shine a light on the biases and prejudices in the entertainment world that have helped to define it.

The series premieres on Netflix on 1st May. Here’s the evocative new poster:

The third Netflix series by the Glee and American Horror Story creator – following Ratched, based on the character from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and The Politician – Hollywood was first announced last year as “a love letter to the Golden Age of Tinseltown”.

Now, as Murphy is planning his .next Netflix steps, including A Chorus Line and Halston, Hollywood has lined up its first star: none other than Glee veteran Darren Criss.

“Honored to say that I’m heading back to the House of Murphy where I’ll be starring in but also executive producing HOLLYWOOD with Time’s King of Television,” he wrote on Instagram.

Ryan Murphy takes Netflix to Hollywood

23rd February 2019

Ryan Murphy is heading to Hollywood for his third Netflix series.

The American Horror Story, Glee and Feud creator is one of the industry’s biggest hitmakers on the small screen, with a host of successes winning over audiences both in the USA and internationally. After a lengthy stint at FX, he was poached by Netflix last year to develop projects for them over a period of five years. Since then, he has already unveiled two projects: Ratched, based on the character from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and The Politician, a musical series about the political career of one Santa Barbara hopeful.

His latest, Hollywood, follows more in the footsteps of Feud, his drama about the rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford on the set of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?. Announcing the show on Instagram, he revealed that it was “a love letter to the Golden Age of Tinseltown”.

Little other details are known about the project, but he confirmed that it was ordered straight to series by Netflix. It is co-created with longtime collaborator Ian Brennan and will begin principal photography this summer.

“This will be my third show for Netflix and I couldn’t be more excited or proud about the work we are doing together,” he added.
