Netflix is set to release the next awaited series Hollywood. The online streamer had released the first look pic of Murphy’s limited web series.
The star cast includes Darren Criss, Patti LuPone, and Dylan McDermott and so on. To tell the fact this series would take you back to the classic period of Hollywood that this generation would wish to see.
Here’s a glimpse of what the series is about:
The story is set in the 1940s and it is quite another dimension of Murphy’s other series like Glee, The Politician etc. This is co-directed by Ian Berman who will infuse real and imaginary characters to give you an idea on what 1940 Hollywood would have been.
Janet Mock the executive producer stated that: “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,”
She continued saying: “What if a band of outsiders were given a chance to tell their own story? What if the person with greenlight power was a woman? The screenwriter a black man? What if the heroine was a woman of color? Is 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?”

It’s yet another essence of Murphy’s small series and as per Murphy he wanted to show the audience another side of Hollywood post he made the FX miniseries, Fued.
He said that: “Ever since I did ‘Feud’, I had been working on a piece about the buried history of Hollywood,” he shared with USA Today. “I was very interested, even as a young person, in three people: Rock Hudson, Anna May Wong, and Hattie McDaniel. I’d been sort of noodling with that and then Darren Criss and I had dinner after [‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story’] and we were talking about what we wanted to work on next. And we both wanted to do something that would be inspirational, upbeat and that had a happy ending, that was about victories.”
