“I don’t need to be well-known for one thing that I do, I need to be well-known for who I’m!”
Which will sound just like the mantra of a present-day social media influencer, but it surely’s truly a line from the trailer of Peacock’s Angelyne, a restricted collection impressed by a real-life icon who rose to fame within the Nineteen Eighties when her sweet coated picture immediately started showing on billboards throughout Los Angeles.

“Angelyne is an homage to the true Angelyne who turned a cultural icon in Los Angeles,” says govt producer and showrunner Allison Miller. “It’s not a straight ahead biopic. It’s a narrative impressed by all the things Angelyne represents, so it’s a magical story, a hopeful story, a narrative about changing into the particular person you had been meant to be and believing in your individual internal power to manifest your desires. It’s a narrative about Los Angeles and all the things town means to individuals who transfer right here and to individuals who dream about shifting right here.”
