Hollywood First Look Images – Netflix Series Still Secretive With Premiere Closing In

When there’s a new series with Ryan Murphy involved, you expect to know a lot of details, or at the very least, the sort of creature you’re about to get. With Netflix’ Hollywood set to premiere in mere weeks, there’s still a lot of mystery surrounding this effort to examine the world of cinema’s Golden Age and it’s oft-repeated focus on the power dynamics that shaped the entertainment world.

In the most general terms you might imagine, the series is about a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers who are trying to “make it,” and as the series suggests itself, they mean “no matter the cost.”

That’s probably all you need to know to decide to tune in, and it isn’t a bad setup for a series, especially considering there’s a great cast involved. However, just when you thought you knew where you were going, the series suggests that it offers an examination of “what the entertainment landscape might look like if they (the decades-old power dynamics) had been dismantled.” Wait, what? It’s hard to know what to make of that.

Still, there’s a true ensemble feel to the structure, with the series promising that each character offers a unique glimpse behind the scenes, which will lead to a variety of webs to unravel.

The cast includes – David Corenswet as Jack, Darren Criss as Raymond, Jeremy Pope as Archie, Laura Harrier as Camille, Samara Weaving as Claire, Dylan McDermott as Ernie, Holland Taylor as Ellen Kincaid, Patti LuPone as Avis, Jim Parsons as Henry Willson, Jake Picking as Rock Hudson, Joe Mantello as Dick, and Maude Apatow as Henrietta

Catch a bit of a preview with these first look images below, and be sure to tune in to Hollywood on May 1st.
