Ryan Murphy’s Hollywood has added Jim Parsons, Dylan McDermott, Samara Weaving, Maude Apatow, Joe Mantello, Laura Harrier and Jake Picking to its cast. 

The streaming service announced the casting news Friday. 

The new additions join the previously announced Patti LuPone, Holland Taylor, and Darren Criss.

Little is known about the limited drama series. When originally announced in a profile of Murphy in TIME magazine, the prolific producer called the project “a love letter to the Golden Age of Tinseltown.” Set in the 1940s it will center on three lead characters played by Pope, Criss and Corenswet.

Hollywood is Murphy’s first project under his overall deal with the streamer. It is also Murphy’s third show for Netflix following The Politician and Ratched.
