Hollywood (Netflix)

Glimpsing behind the curtain of golden-era Hollywood (or indeed any age of the silver screen) is not new in movies or TV, with famous examples including The Player and Day For Night. But that isn't deterring Ryan Murphy and regular collaborator Ian Brennan, as they're diving into that well for Hollywood under their Netflix deal. See the first trailer...

Hollywood follows a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers in post-World War II Tinseltown as they try to make it — 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. We'll have to wait and see whether the show truly has something fresh to say about it all.

Murphy has gathered a typically eclectic cast, this time including David Corenswet, Darren Criss, Laura Harrier, Samara Weaving, Dylan McDermott, Holland Taylor, Patti LuPone and Jim Parsons.

The show launches on Netflix on 1 May.
