The limited series tells the story of the rise and fall of a renowned American fashion designer from the ‘80s
Ewan McGregor is leading the Ryan Murphy production, ‘Halston,’ that will debut on Netflix on May 14.
The limited series tells the story of a renowned fashion designer from the ‘70s and ‘80s and explores his rise to fame and his subsequent extravagant life style.
The ensemble cast features Krysta Rodriguez, Rebecca Dayan, Bill Pullman, Gian Franco Rodriguez, David Pittu, Sullivan Jones, Rory Culkin, Kelly Bishop, and Vera Farmiga.
This is the first collaboration between producer Christine Vachon and Ryan Murphy, who is best known for creating successful TV series such as “American Horror Story,” “Hollywood,” and “Ratched."
“Halston follows the legendary fashion designer (Ewan McGregor), as he leverages his single, invented name into a worldwide fashion empire that’s synonymous with luxury, sex, status and fame, literally defining the era he lives in, 1970’s and ‘80’s New York — until a hostile takeover forces him to battle for control of his most precious asset… the name Halston itself,” reads the series synopsis.
Directed by Daniel Minahan, the Netflix series is executive produced by Ryan Murphy, Ian Brennan, Alexis Martin Woodall, Ewan McGregor, Eric Kovtun, Sharr White, Christine Vachon, Pamela Koffler and Minahan himself.
