Emmy Rossum: “Angelyne”

"Angelyne", a new TV miniseries based on a true story article published in the Hollywood Reporter, is directed by Lucy Tcherniak and Matt Spicer, starring Emmy Rossum as a wannabe celebrity who promoted herself successfully through a series of Hollywood billboards, streaming on Peacock May 18, 2022:

"...'Angelyne' is about fame, identity, survival, billboards, 'Corvettes', lingerie, men, women, women teasing men, men obsessed with women, West Hollywood, crystals, UFOs, and most importantly of all, the self-proclaimed 'Rorschach' test in pink, a glow-in-the-dark queen of the universe, 'Angelyne'. 

Cast also includes Martin Freeman, Alex Karpovsky, Hamish Linklater, Charlie Rowe, Lukas Gage, Michael Angarano, Molly Ephraim, Philip Ettinger, Antjuan Tobias, Tonatiuh and David Krumholtz.

"As a society broadening our understanding of identity, this story plays with large questions. Are we defined by the historical facts of our life? Or can we define ourselves? To self-actualize, to embrace whoever we are on the inside and live whatever truth feels most accurate," said Rossum. 

"When everyone’s experience of reality and truth is personal, can there ever be one true story? I've spent the better part of 4 years thinking, living, and breathing this project. I love 'Angelyne'.
