Looks like there was some drama before there was an offer that couldn’t be refused. Today during Paramount+‘s TCA presentation revealed the trailer for their upcoming event series titled, The Offer. Here we will be able to see the roadblocks and struggles that took place in trying to make the classic gangster film, The Godfather. You can check out the trailer down below as well the new key art that was also released.
Of course, there would be so much drama around the making of such an iconic film. The Offer is getting set to premiere on Thursday, April 28th, exclusively for Paramount Plus. On that day audiences will be able to watch the first three episodes. Which will be part of the ten episodes that will make up the series. Each episode after the first will be available to stream weekly on Thursdays.
I think that it was a very interesting way to showcase Hollywood. I enjoy the blend between the entertainment business and the gangster underworld of that time. With what looks to be a great cast I am excited to see how this story unfolds and learn more about it in the process.
Here is the synopsis for The Offer that was provided by Paramount+
From Paramount Television Studios, THE OFFER is based on Oscar®-winning producer Albert S. Ruddy’s extraordinary, never-before-seen experiences of making “The Godfather.” The series stars Miles Teller as Albert S. Ruddy, Matthew Goode as Robert Evans, Juno Temple as Bettye McCartt, Giovanni Ribisi as Joe Colombo, Dan Fogler as Francis Ford Coppola, Burn Gorman as Charles Bluhdorn, Colin Hanks as Barry Lapidus and Patrick Gallo as Mario Puzo.
The 10-episode event series is created and written by Oscar® and Emmy-nominated writer Michael Tolkin (“Escape at Dannemora,” “The Player”) and also written and executive produced by Nikki Toscano (“Hunters”), who serves as showrunner. In addition to Tolkin and Toscano, two-time Oscar®-winner Albert S. Ruddy (“Million Dollar Baby,” “The Longest Yard,” “Hogan’s Heroes”), Miles Teller, Russell Rothberg and Leslie Greif, who also developed the series, serve as executive producers alongside Dexter Fletcher (“Rocketman”), who also directed the first block of the series.
