Amazon has set the premiere date for their original series The Last Tycoon as July 28. The pilot of the nine-episode adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s unfinished novel was part of Amazon’s pilot season a year ago and was greenlit shortly after. You can watch the show’s first trailer here, which Amazon just released this morning.
“The Last Tycoon tells the story of Monroe Stahr, played by Matt Bomer, a dashing and talented studio executive who struggles to find his place within the movie industry and the world. Monroe is caught in a power struggle with his boss and mentor, Pat Brady, played by Kelsey Grammer, when a young Irish waitress, played by Lily Collins, catches his eye. Her spark just might be the fuel he needs to create a truly great and important film in his quest for power.”
