Hollywood is a new limited series from Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan and stars Darren Criss that will be coming soon to Netflix on May 1 but you can check out the trailer today.

All Ryan Murphy does is make one great show after another. His latest is Hollywood and it’s coming to Netflix on May 1.

Netflix signed Murphy to a massive overall deal a couple of years ago and the content is going to be coming from one of TV’s top creators for years to come.

Hollywood sees Murphy and co-creator Ian Brennan remake Hollywood in their image. The series follows aspiring actors and filmmakers who look to make it big after World War II.

Hollywood synopsis from Netflix:

"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.  Provocative and incisive, Hollywood exposes and examines decades-old power dynamics, and what the entertainment landscape might look like if they had been dismantled."

David Corenswet, Darren Criss, Jeremy Pope, Laura Harrier, Samara Weaving, Dylan McDermott, Holland Taylor, Ellen Kincaid, Patti LuPone, Jim Parsons, Jake PIcking, Joe Mantello and Maude Apatow star in Hollywood.
