The Offer (2022)

50 years ago The Godfather was in cinemas after a long fight and a trpubled pre)  production.
Now Paramont+ made The Offer, a series about the making of the film, focusing on Albert Ruddy (Miles Teller), the producer in charge, Robert Evans (the chief of the studio, played wonderfully by Matthew Goode), Francis Coppola Dan Fogler) and Mario Puzo (Patrick Gallo), the author of the original book. It is a fascinating ride, in details (10 episodes, longer than the whole Godgather Saga:)), about the involvment of the Mob, Giovanni Ribisi is a mean Joe Colombo, the Gulf+Western factor, inside stories and of course, dramatic licences. Grand hyper Charles Bludhorn (the G+W fuhrer) is played with panache by Burn Gorman and his lapdog Barry Lepidus is a stonefaced Colin Hanks. Josh Zuckerman is Petyer Bart, 1st hand of Evens, later the chief editor of Variety trade. Juno Temple (llooking great, though I doubt her charcater wa sso influential in the real story), she reminded me a lot of Rosanna Arquette. Nora Arezender is Francoise Glazer, la boss de Chateau Marmont, and Al Ruddy's high maintenace mistress. 
Created by Michael Tolkien, the emerite author of The Player, with Leslie Greif.
