Preview: Netflix’s “HOLLYWOOD” flips the script on “Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood”

There’s little doubt who and what inspired Ryan Murphy’s new series “Hollywood” on Netflix. It was the scandalous book and doc and claims of “Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood.”

The series is about what Murphy, of “Glee” and “Feud” and “American Horror Story” did with that. He looks for an alternate “Hollywood ending” to all the slow-to-change gender and racial discrimination that might have been different had Scotty and other closeted, “use the back entrance” and the like acceptance of the status quo people in and around show business had been upended by what was REALLY going on in Tinseltown during its Golden Age.

Interesting premise. Solid cast.

Looks promising. May 1 on Netflix.
