Ryan Murphy will continue to take over TV and streaming services next month when Hollywood, his latest star-studded Netflix series, arrives on Friday, May 1.

The series stars David Corenswet, Darren Criss, Jeremy Pope, Samara Weaving, Laura Harrier, Jim Parsons, Dylan McDermott, Holland Taylor, Patti LuPone, Jake Picking, and Joe Mantello. And Hollywood is just one of several major titles heading to the streaming service in May.

Also being added to the library next month is The Eddy, an eight-episode musical drama from Damian Chazelle which centers on the the jazz world of modern-day Paris and stars Andre Holland as Elliott Udo, once a celebrated jazz pianist in New York and now co-owner of a struggling club called — you guessed it — The Eddy. That series arrives on Friday, May 8.

Other new originals coming in May include Alice Wu‘s The Half of It, a film about a shy, straight-A student who is hired by a kindly jock to help get the attention of a popular girl (May 1) and Trial By Media, a documentary about how the fourth estate has played a factor in majorly publicized criminal trials throughout recent history (May 11).
