Today, on what would have been Roy Halston Frowick’s 89th birthday, Netflix Canada announces the global premiere date for the limited series Halston set for May 14.

Follows the legendary fashion designer (Ewan McGregor), as he leverages his single, invented name into a worldwide fashion empire that’s synonymous with luxury, sex, status and fame, literally defining the era he lives in, 1970’s and ‘80’s New York — until a hostile takeover forces him to battle for control of his most precious asset… the name Halston itself.

The cast includes:

Ewan McGregor as “Halston”
Krysta Rodriguez as ”Liza Minnelli”
Rebecca Dayan as “Elsa Peretti”
Bill Pullman as “David Mahoney”
Gian Franco Rodriguez as “Victor Hugo”
David Pittu as “Joe Eula”
Sullivan Jones as “Ed Austin”
Rory Culkin as “Joel Schumacher”
Kelly Bishop as “Eleanor Lambert”
Vera Farmiga as “Adele”

The series is Executive Produced by Ryan Murphy, Ian Brennan, Alexis Martin Woodall, Daniel Minahan, Ewan McGregor, Eric Kovtun, Sharr White, and Christine Vachon and Pamela Koffler of Killer Films. Minahan also serves as the series director.
