Halston follows the legendary fashion designer 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, the 1970s and ‘80s New York — until a hostile takeover forces him to battle for control of his most precious asset… the name Halston itself.
The limited series will be led by Ewan McGregor, who is currently in preparing for the production start of Disney+’s Star Wars prequel series Obi-Wan Kenobi. Joining him are Rory Culkin (Castle Rock) as iconic film director Joel Schumacher (The Lost Boys), Krysta Rodriguez (Daybreak) as Liza Minnelli, who is known as a close friend to the late fashion designer.
It will also feature Bill Pullman as David Mahoney, Kelly Bishop as Eleanor Lamber, Vera Farmiga as Adele, Rebecca Davan as Elsa Peretti, David Pittu as Joe Eula, Sullivan Jones as Ed Austin and Gianfranco Rodriguez as Victor Hugo.
Based on Steven Gaines’ book Simply Halston, the series is written and created by Sharr White with Daniel Minahan directing. Executive producers are Ryan Murphy, Ian Brennan, Alexis Martin Woodall, Daniel Minahan, Ewan McGregor, Eric Kovtun, Sharr White, and Christine Vachon, and Pamela Koffler of Killer Films.
The limited series is the latest addition to Ryan Murphy’s long-list of ongoing projects that he is currently developing and producing for Netflix as part of his massive multi-year deal with the streaming service. These projects include A Chorus Line miniseries and a crime drama limited series titled Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story starring Evan Peters.
