‘The Last Tycoon’ On Amazon Prime July 28th
A co-production with TriStar Television, The Last Tycoon is written and directed by Academy Award® nominee Billy Ray (Captain Phillips, The Hunger Games), and executive produced by Ray, Christopher Keyser (Tyrant, Party of Five), who serve as showrunners, Joshua D. Maurer (Rubicon), Alixandre Witlin (Georgia O’Keeffe), and David A. Stern (Rosemary’s Baby). Mad Men’s Scott Hornbacher serves as co-executive producer, along with Perri Kipperman (Billions). From F. Scott Fitzgerald’s last work, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, The Last Tycoon follows Hollywood’s Golden Boy, Monroe Stahr (Matt Bomer, White Collar) as he battles father figure and boss, Pat Brady (Kelsey Grammer, Frasier) for the soul of their studio.
In a world darkened by the Great Depression and the growing international influence of Hitler’s Germany, The Last Tycoon illuminates the passions, violence, and towering ambition of 1930’s Hollywood. Lily Collins (The Blind Side) also stars as Celia Brady, with Rosemarie DeWitt (La La Land) as Rose Brady, and Dominique McElligott (House of Cards) as Kathleen Moore. Noted Pulitzer-winning Fitzgerald scholar A. Scott Berg serves as consulting producer.
