LOS ANGELES, Sept. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Loyola Marymount University School of Film and Television is pleased to announce the return of The Hollywood Masters, hosted by Emmy Award-winning journalist Stephen Galloway.
The new season kicks off September 27 with Oscar-winning actress Dame Helen Mirren (Gosford Park, Prime Suspect, The Queen). Mirren will be followed by acclaimed filmmakers Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan and Mother!) and Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy and The Shape of Water); beloved TV, film and stage star Sir Patrick Stewart (Star Trek: The Next Generation, X-Men); and Oscar-nominated actor-writer-director James Franco (Freaks and Geeks, 127 Hours and The Disaster Artist).
The series has featured some of the biggest names in the industry, including Clint Eastwood, Jane Fonda, Michael Caine, Sean Penn, Amy Adams, Oliver Stone, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, David O. Russell and Aaron Sorkin. Season 1 of the series is currently streaming on Netflix, where it has found a devoted following.
"The Hollywood Masters, our flagship program, gives our students an opportunity to learn directly from some of the most incredible talents in the industry," says Stephen Ujlaki, dean of the School of Film and Television. "I am thrilled with this season's line-up which is comprised of artists and innovators who are known for pushing the boundaries of cinema."
"I grew up in England revering the work of Helen Mirren and Patrick Stewart, and it's thrilling to get the chance to interview them in real depth like this," says Galloway, executive editor of The Hollywood Reporter and a 2013 recipient of the Entertainment Journalist of the Year Award. "My other guests are some of the film artists I most admire today — Aronofsky and Franco and del Toro — each of them brave and original and fearless, even in a studio system that makes it ever harder to be so."
The Hollywood Masters taping is open to LMU students, faculty and alumni only.
