An Offer you can’t refuse

The Offer is an American biographical drama miniseries created by Michael Tolkin and developed by Tokin and Nikki Toscano for Paramount+.

The series follows the development and production of Francis Ford Coppola’s landmark gangster film The Godfather (1972) for Paramount Pictures.

The show is based on Oscar-winning producer Albert S. Ruddy’s extraordinary, never-revealed experiences about all challenges to get the film done.

The series manages to both take the stranger-than-fiction production of a genuinely groundbreaking movie seriously while also lightly mocking the self-seriousness of Hollywood storytellers and actual mobsters. I love it. It is intense, well made and with an amazing story about the best film ever made – showing how close it was that is was never made.

I highly recommend this 10 episode series.
