#TrailerThings: Murphy’s “Hollywood” wants to rewrite history #netflix

We received the first trailer for Ryan Murphy’s second Netflix project – the limited series Hollywood. The limited series follows an alternate reality of post-WWII Los Angeles where aspiring actors and filmmakers of marginalized groups break barriers. The cast is stacked with Darren Criss, Jeremy Pope, Laura Harrier, Patti LuPone and Jim Parsons. It looks interesting – but I can’t help but see the same hangups that plague modern-day Tinseltown (colorism, white gayze) being celebrated as trailblazing. Hollywood arrives May 1.
