Ryan Murphy Revamps Old 'Hollywood' in Very Gay Netflix Re-Imagining

"If you change the way that movies are made, I think you can change the world."

The central theme of Ryan Murphy's latest Netflix mini-series, Hollywood,is a simple one: "What if you could rewrite the story?" 

Aspiring actors resorted to desperate measures to make it to the top in Hollywood's Golden Age, but how might history have changed if Black writers and actors were given chances, or if closeted actor Rock Hudson had been able to live his life authentically?

By re-imagining iconic real-life, old-Hollywood figures like Hudson, Henry Willson, and Anna May Wong, the show gives an idealized glimpse of what Hollywood could have been while "spotlighting the unfair systems and biases across race, gender and sexuality that continue to this day," according to the official description. "Provocative and incisive, Hollywood exposes and examines decades-old power dynamics, and what the entertainment landscape might look like if they had been dismantled."

Darren Criss says it best in the thrilling new trailer, "If you change the way that movies are made, I think you can change the world." Criss is just one part of the all-star cast alongside Jim Parsons, Jake Picking, Laura Harrier, Jeremy Pope, Dylan McDermott, Holland Taylor, Samara Weaving, Michelle Krusiec, Queen Latifah, and Patti Lupone.

Hollywood premieres May 1 on Netflix. Watch the official trailer below!
