13stream is thrilled to provide the world premiere of an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from The Offer, the new series from Paramount that centers on the production of The Godfather. The show’s first season is available to stream on Paramount+, and the Blu-ray and DVD versions are scheduled to be released on November 29.
According to the series’ summary, “The Offer follows the path of Al Ruddy, a Hollywood outsider who starts as a programmer and ends up producing one of the greatest films of all time: The Godfather.” During production, Ruddy, with his assistant Bettye McCartt and director Francis Ford Coppola, face all the challenges of making a movie.
These challenges range from conflicts in casting and scripting to the involvement of the actual mafia. The rising of crime leader Joe Colombo and the Italian-American Civil Rights League, both opposed to the best-selling novel by Mario Puzo, runs concurrently with Ruddy’s rise to power. It is up to Ruddy’s cinematic adaptation, which sets him and Colombo on a collision course, to determine whether or not the movie is successful.
The fate of Paramount Pictures, a studio currently in the last position and on the verge of being shut down by its parent corporation, Gulf & Western, is currently uncertain. The legendary studio boss Robert Evans takes a chance on “The Godfather” to rescue Paramount and restore it to its rightful place at the top.
