Peacock’s limited series Angelyne, starring Emmy Rossum as the infamous Los Angeles icon, will premiere on Thursday, May 19, with all eight episodes dropping at once. Peacock released a new teaser trailer for the series, in which we see Rossum as Angelyne, saying: “You really want to know my story? The story of my life? The truth is, I’m something that you have to experience.”
Angelyne – a singer, actress and model — was a celebrity who became famous before the rise of social media. The limited series will tell her story on how she came to fame in the 1980s after appearing on billboards throughout Los Angeles. The official synopsis describes Angelyne as “the glow-in-the-dark queen of the universe and L.A.’s original billboard icon… who infiltrated pop culture and rose to fame in the 1980s when a series of billboards began to appear around L.A. featuring her signature curvier figure.”
Along with Rossum, the cast includes Martin Freeman, Alex Karpovsky, Hamish Linklater, Charlie Rowe, Lukas Gage, Michael Angarano, Molly Ephraim and David Krumholtz.
