DEVELOPMENT HISTORY:

STATUS:
currently in development (2016-2017 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE:
ordered to series
DESCRIPTION:
(from Amazon's press release, May 2016) A co-production with TriStar Television, The Last Tycoon is written and directed by Academy Award nominee Billy Ray (Captain Phillips, The Hunger Games), and executive produced by Ray and Christopher Keyser (Tyrant, Party of Five), who serve as showrunners, Joshua D. Maurer (Rosemary's Baby), Alixandre Witlin (Rosemary's Baby), and David A. Stern (Rosemary's Baby). Mad Men's Scott Hornbacher serves as co-executive producer of the pilot, along with Perri Kipperman (Billions). An adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's last work, The Last Tycoon follows Hollywood's Golden Boy, Monroe Stahr (Matt Bomer, White Collar) as he battles father figure and boss, Pat Brady (Kelsey Grammer, Frasier) for the soul of their studio. 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. Lily Collins (The Blind Side) stars as Cecelia Brady and noted Pulitzer-winning Fitzgerald scholar A. Scott Berg serves as consulting producer.
