Amazon original series ‘The Last Tycoon’ debuts on Prime Video on 28 July

MUMBAI: Online video retailer and content creator Amazon has announced its new original one hour series, ‘The Last Tycoon’.

Starring Matt Bomer, Kelsey Grammer and Lily Collins, the series will premiere on 28 July exclusively on Prime Video.

From F. Scott Fitzgerald’s last work, which celebrated its 75th anniversary last year, ‘The Last Tycoon’—inspired by the life of legendary film mogul Irving Thalberg—follows Hollywood’s Golden Boy, Monroe Stahr (Bomer), as he battles father figure and boss Pat Brady (Grammer) 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 1930s Hollywood.

Customers can watch the pilot episode online at Amazon.com/The-Last-Tycoon before the full season’s remaining eight episodes air on 28 July. The show will be available on PrimeVideo.com for Prime Video members in more than 200 countries and territories around the globe.

“It’s thrilling to watch F. Scott Fitzgerald’s extraordinary work brought to life through the eyes of Billy and Chris, and this incredible cast. This great team has created a stunning portrayal of 1930s Hollywood. We’re excited to share the series with Prime members this summer,” said Amazon Studios head of comedy, drama and VR Joe Lewis.  

Prime members will be able to stream ‘The Last Tycoon’ exclusively via the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices and online. Members can also download the series to mobile devices for offline viewing at no additional cost to their membership.

‘The Last Tycoon’ was part of Amazon’s pilot season last year, a unique development process that gives all customers an opportunity to stream and review pilots in order to help choose the next Amazon Original Series that are then made available to Prime members.
