Laura Harrier & Netflix's 'Hollywood' Cast Present First Look at Tastemaker Event!

Laverne Cox happily strikes a pose with Laura Harrier while supporting her at the special Tastemaker screening and reception for her upcoming series Hollywood held at San Vicente Bungalows on Sunday (February 23) in West Hollywood, Calif.

Laura, 29, was joined at the event by her co-stars Maude Apatow, Jake Picking, Dylan McDermott, Michelle Krusiec, David Corenswet, Jeremy Pope and Mira Sorvino, as well as co-creator and executive producer Ian Brennan.

Laverne, 47, was in attendance in support alongside Rumer Willis, Maude‘s father Judd Apatow, Harry Hamlin and his wife Lisa Rinna, Zelda Williams and Janet Mock, who introduced the first screening of Hollywood to the crowd.

Here’s a synopsis: “Hollywood follows a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers in post-World War II Hollywood as they try to make it in Tinseltown — no matter the cost. Each character offers a unique glimpse behind the gilded curtain of Hollywood’s Golden Age, spotlighting the unfair systems and biases across race, gender and sexuality that continue to this day. Provocative and incisive, Hollywood exposes and examines decades-old power dynamics, and what the entertainment landscape might look like if they had been dismantled.”

Ryan Murphy‘s new show Hollywood launches globally on Friday, May 1!

FYI: Maude wore a Bora Aksu outfit.
