Someone brilliant finally realized that 1970’s fashion legend Halston needed to be brought back to life via the small screen. Deadline, of whom broke the news, states “Simply Halston tracks Halston (born Roy Halston Frowick) as he leverages his single, invented name into a worldwide fashion empire that’s synonymous with luxury, sex, status and fame.”
Ewan McGregor is set to star as Halston himself with excitement brewing over who will be casted as Halston’s best friends the “Halstonettes” which included notable icons Pat Cleveland, Anjelica Huston, Beverly Johnson, and Alva Chinn. McGregor is executive producing the series with Sharr White of The Affair set to write the script and American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace’s Dan Minahan set to direct.
While no network has announced picking the series up yet, we can only presume that it’ll be in high demand from every network executives desk.
