The Godfather‘s behind-the-scenes drama has scored the small screen treatment in The Offer, a limited series about the making of the Oscar-winning mob movie from the perspective of producer Al Ruddy.
Debuting April 28 on Paramount+, the 10-episode miniseries stars Miles Teller as Ruddy, Dan Fogler as director Francis Ford Coppola, Matthew Goode as Paramount Studios executive Robert Evans, Juno Temple as agent Bettye McCartt, Justin Chambers as Marlon Brando, Anthony Ippolito as Al Pacino, Giovanni Ribisi as New York Mafioso Joe Colombo, Patrick Gallo as The Godfather author Mario Puzo, Colin Hanks as business tycoon Barry Lapidus and Burn Gorman as industrialist Charles Bluhdorn.
The Godfather is based on Puzo’s 1969 best-selling novel, and Coppola’s 1972 film adaptation won best picture, best actor and best screenplay at the 45th Academy Awards. The Godfather: Part II was released in 1974, and the Oscar-nominated The Godfather: Part III arrived in theaters in 1990. (The third film was recut in 2020 into a version that Coppola and Puzo “intended the movie to be.”) The iconic picture has also inspired an official cookbook and an Italian food brand.
The real-life Ruddy executive produced drama The Offer, which was fêted last week at Paramount Studios, not far from Evans’ office. Showrunner Nikki Toscano told The Hollywood Reporter that Ruddy (who did not attend the event) was “incredibly supportive since day one.”
