Netflix is kicking off its new offerings for May 2020 with Ryan Murphy‘s highly anticipated new original series, Hollywood.
Set in post-World War II Tinseltown, the miniseries draws on true stories like those of actor Anna May wong, Rock Hudson and Hattie McDaniels as inspirations for its glamorous revisionist history of what Hollywood might have been if oft-overlooked voices had been given the spotlight.
The star-studded cast includes industry veterans like Patti LuPone and Holland Taylor, as well as rising talents like Laura Harrier, David Corenswet and Jeremy Pope. All seven episodes drop on May 1st.
Another Netflix original series, Dead to me, starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, returns with its second season on May 8th.
Those looking for a laugh are in luck: Jerry Seinfeld’s hour-long standup comedy special, 23 Hours to Kill, debuts on May 5th, while Patton Oswalt’s standup special, Patton Oswalt: I Love Everything will come to Netflix on May 19th. Hannah Gadsby follows up her genre-bending hit Nanette with a new comedy special, Douglas, on May 26th.
While the coronavirus pandemic prevented the rom-com The Lovebirds from releasing in theaters, the Issa Rae- and Kumail Nanjiani-fronted film will make its debut on Netflix on May 22nd. Other films coming to Netflix this month include the critically acclaimed thriller Uncut Gems, Back to the Future, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Trumbo.
