Hollywood follows a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers in post-World War II Hollywood as they try to make it in Tinseltown. The series, which spotlights the biases across race, gender, and sexuality that continue to this day, examines decades-old power dynamics and what the entertainment landscape might look like if they had been dismantled.

The series is executive-produced by co-creators Murphy and Brennan, along with Alexis Martin Woodall and Mock, who also serves as a director.
