We were like dragonflies. We seemed to be suspended effortlessly in the air but in reality our wings were beating very, very fast.
– Mae Murray

In the 1920s the fledgling movie industry hurtles from Bohemian backwater to the slickly controlled powerhouse of the Golden age. As the horrors WWI begin to fade and the Depression looms on the horizon, the sun sets on the early days of the Wild West movie colony with its cacophony of chaotic creativity, excess and glorious debauchery. The dawn of the polished and controlled world of the studio system and the Motion Picture Code looms on the horizon, but for now we are in the dead of night: where hedonism dances with despair, skeletons peek out their closets and everybody makes it up as they go along.

Season One

Dragonflies

At the dawn of Hollywood, a wannabe actress impersonates a dead star in order to step into her career – but as her wildest dreams begin to come true, the star’s dangerous past appears to haunt her…

Strip away the phoney tinsel in Hollywood and you find the real tinsel underneath. 
– Oscar Levant

Tinseltown

As the roaring twenties get underway, a fledgling studio risks everything on an explosive film – but as the storm clouds of censorship gather, a desperate actor is forced to chose between love and survival.

Nobody can be exactly like me. Sometimes I even have trouble.
– Tallulah Bankhead

Dark Angels

The adolescent movie industry is rocked by a scandalous murder that threatens to destroy everything in its wake – but when the truth more shocking than anyone could have imagined is discovered, a scapegoat must step into the role of a lifetime.

Hedonism. Despair turned inside out.
-F. Scott Fitzgerald
