Hello Lilyians! Our gallery has been updated with various promotional photos from The Last Tycoon, which as you know is set to debut July 28 on Amazon Prime Video! Thank you to beautifulballad for the episode stills from episodes 4 and 7, titled “Burying the Boy Genius” and “A More Perfect Union”!
Amazon’s nine-episode adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Last Tycoon will debut July 28 exclusively on Prime Video, Amazon said today. The company also released its first trailer for the original series starring Matt Bomer, Kelsey Grammer and Lily Collins.
“They created the Hollywood dream,” reads a trailer subtitle, setting up the premise for anyone unfamiliar with Fitzgerald’s final work, based loosely on the life of mogul Irving Thalberg.
The series, executive produced by Billy Ray and Christopher Keyser, will be available globally on Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories.
The Last Tycoon follows Hollywood’s Golden Boy Monroe Stahr (Bomer) as he battles father figure and boss Pat Brady (Grammer) for the soul of their studio. Says Amazon: “In a world darkened by the Great Depression and the growing international influence of Hitler’s Germany, The Last Tycoon illuminates the passions, violence, and towering ambition of 1930’s Hollywood.”
Customers can watch the pilot episode online at Amazon.com/The-Last-Tycoon before the full season’s remaining eight episodes air on July 28.
EXCLUSIVE: With a well-known title and formidable lead cast, Amazon’s The Last Tycoon pilot has been a strong contender for a series pickup. Now the project, toplined by Matt Bomer, Kelsey Grammer, Rosemarie DeWitt and Lily Collins, has been ordered to series by the streaming service, I have learned. It comes from Sony TV’s TriStar Television. I hear Amazon’s other drama pilot from the batch, The Interestings, is not going forward.
Written and directed by Billy Ray based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s final unfinished novel, The Last Tycoon was inspired by the life of film mogul Irving Thalberg, on whom the book’s protagonist Monroe Stahr was based. The project centers on Stahr (Bomer), Hollywood’s first wunderkind studio executive in the 1930s as he climbs to the height of power pitting him against his mentor and current head of the studio, the brawny, imposing, charming and vain Pat Brady (Grammer), a character based on Louis B. Mayer. Having come from the streets, Brady has no intention of returning to his misfortune, and is determined to make sure his studio is successful, no matter what personal morals he compromises. Dewitt plays Pat Brady’s wife, Rose Brady, who may be involved with Stahr.
Anthony Lucero’s next movie is based on his long poem “The Clown”. Set against the backdrop of a small traveling circus, the pic centers on a European clown and his 5-year-old daughter as they lead each other through the everyday mysteries of love, magic and loss.
In this groundbreaking debut essay collection, featuring never-before-seen photos, actress Lily Collins—star of Mortal Instruments and Rules Don’t Apply—is opening a poignant, honest conversation about the things young women struggle with: body image, self-confidence, relationships, family, dating, and so much more.
