Ryan Murphy and Glee, Scream Queens and The Politician collaborator Ian Brennan have teamed up once again to produce a brand new period drama titled Hollywood. The series is the first of a line of original Ryan Murphy content debuting on the streaming platform as part of the mega-deal he signed in 2018.
When is Hollywood out on Netflix?
Hollywood will premiere on Netflix worldwide on Friday, May 1.
At the moment it is unknown how many episodes are in Hollywood on Netflix.
However, eagle-eyed Ryan Murphy fans have noticed the tags on the official Netflix page for the series have ‘anthology’ listed.
Hollywood was described as ‘limited series’ by Murphy suggesting there would be one season only, but anthology seems to suggest the show will be back in the future, with an entirely different storyline.
To watch Hollywood, you can sign up to a 30 day free trial of Netflix.
After the trial is complete, you can subscribe to the streaming service from £7.99 per month.

What is Hollywood on Netflix about?
Hollywood is a period drama, which Murphy has described as a “love letter to the Holden Age of Tinseltown.”
The series will follow a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers in 1940s Hollywood.
Along the way, they will encounter huge obstacles which will expose the unfair systems and biases across race, gender and sexuality, which still exist today.
The synopsis concludes: “Provocative and incisive, Hollywood exposes and examines decades-old power dynamics, and what the entertainment landscape might look like if they had been dismantled.”
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, star David Corenswet said: “It’s 1940s Hollywood, so there’s going to be great clothes and great accents. It’s going to be sexy and optimistic. It’s really about young people and the excitement of young people seeking an opportunity.”
Is there a trailer for Hollywood on Netflix?
No, there is no trailer yet for Hollywood on Netflix.
Filming for the series has finished, so a trailer is expected to drop over the coming months.
In the meantime, you can watch the majority of Murphy’s work on Netflix now.
