Move over Tiger King, there’s a new series that will have the internet buzzing, and it’s about our favorite little community called Tinseltown also known as Hollywood.
A new limited series from Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, Hollywood follows 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 of Hollywood’s Golden Age, spotlighting the unfair systems and biases across race, gender and sexuality that continue to this day.
BGN had the opportunity to sit down with the cast and crew of the series to talk about this alternative universe of the 1940s and the social issues it takes on throughout the episodes.
Interviews below feature: Samara Weaving (“Claire Wood”), Laura Harrier (“Camille Washington”), Darren Criss (“Raymond Ainsley”), Jake Picking (“Rock Hudson”), Jim Parsons (“Henry Willson”), Jeremy Pope (“Archie Coleman”) Dylan McDermott (“Ernie”), Patti LuPone (“Avis Amberg”) and David Corenswet (“Jack Castello”).
Hollywood launches globally on Netflix May 1st.
