Based on the never-before-seen experiences of Oscar and Golden Globe-winning producer Albert S. Ruddy, The Offer follows Ruddy’s journey in bringing Mario Puzo’s epic crime novel The Godfather to life on the big screen. Joining Miles Teller as Al Ruddy are Matthew Goode as Robert Evans, Dan Fogler as Francis Ford Coppola, Burn Gorman as Charles Bluhdorn, Colin Hanks as Barry Lapidus, Giovanni Ribisi as Joe Colombo, Juno Temple as Bettye McCartt, Justin Chambers as Marlon Brando, Anthony Ippolito as Al Pacino, and Patrick Gallo as Mario Puzo.

In an interview with the outlet, executive producer and creator Michael Tolkin has opened up about his reason for bringing The Godfather’s behind-the-scenes story to the small screen. He revealed that its “human story,” was what drew him to the project.

“What sealed it for me was when Al said, ‘Every day of making The Godfather was the worst day in my life,’ and that told me we had a show,” Tolkin said. “For every character in the film, getting it made or stopping it from being made was at the core of their actions, and it was a matter of life and death to them. So that’s not a gangster story, that’s a human story. That’s what gave the book and the movie so much power. Everyone is fighting for their existence.”

The limited series will also feature Josh Zuckerman, Meredith Garretson, Nora Arnezeder, Paul McCrane, Anthony Skordi, Jake Cannavale, James Madio, Michael Rispoli, Stephanie Koenig, Lou Ferrigno, Frank John Hughes, and Danny Nucci.
