The new 7-episode, 1940's-set dramatic TV series "Hollywood", created by Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, streams May 1, 2020 on Netflix:
"...in this sleezy love letter to the 'Golden Age of Tinseltown', 'Hollywood' will look at the sex industry, and how absolutely everything has changed and nothing has changed, following 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, spotlighting the unfair systems and biases across race, gender and sexuality that continue to this day..."
Cast includes Darren Criss as 'Raymond', David Corenswet as 'Jack', Jeremy Pope as 'Archie Coleman', Patti LuPone as 'Avis', Holland Taylor as 'Ellen Kincard', Dylan McDermott as 'Ernie', Jim Parsons as 'Henry Willson' and Joe Mantello as 'Dick'.
