Nine Letter is a miniseries of 12 episodes, one hour each.
It is an anthology that takes in a hundred years of the Hollywood Sign’s history and the events surrounding each of its 9 letters.
It is a historical drama based on real characters and events.
In two years’ time, on 8 December 2023, the Hollywood Sign will celebrate its 100th birthday, an occasion sure to be marked with much fanfare.
In 1978, to mark the 75th anniversary of Hollywood’s incorporation as a city, the original sign was replaced by a new one. The unveiling, for which the sign was surrounded by a mass of searchlights flooding the sky above with beams of light, brought in a television audience of 60 million in the United States alone.
In short, ours is no ordinary protagonist. This is the story of 9 letters in sheet metal that form a sign 13 meters high, 106 meters long – 9 letters that spell out ‘Hollywood’.
A meditation on adaptation and reinvention.
