When it comes to trends, they are born in Hollywood. After all, Hollywood is one of the most inspirational places on the entire planet so that's a no-brainer! Award winning set decorator, Kim Wannop, put together a list of four trends you will notice in Hollywood in 2022. Let’s dive in!
Movies to TV Shows
It feels like every month there is a new TV show being released that was based on a movie and I am perfectly OK with that!
Originally aired in 1994, True Lies was one of the most iconic action movies of the 90s. The show is set to air in 2023, and it makes total sense why they would want to turn this juicy movie into a binge-worthy TV series. The film, directed by James Cameron, starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as a spy who fronts as a boring salesman for his family. Meanwhile, his wife is tempted into having an affair with a used car salesman who alternatively claims he is a spy. The couple must find a way to repair their marriage as they get involved with a plot to track down nuclear missiles from an Islamic jihadist.
-A League of Their Own
Originally released in 1992, this award-winning movie features a professional all-female baseball league climbing their way to victory as a majority of the young men were drafted during World War II. The show aired in August of 2022 on Prime Video so get to streaming!
In a world where we are currently surrounded by people pretending to be famous, the media has taken a fascination to shows about frauds.
We’ve all heard of WeWork in the past few years, but if you haven’t, it’s a worldwide communal office space where entrepreneurs can rent desks. WeWork was very popular and trending due to its modern decor and new approach to office life. The show documents the rise and fall of this corporation. The series is based on the podcast WeCrashed: The Rise and Fall of WeWork by Wondery.
Following the trend of frauds, The Dropout is a story about fame gone wrong. Elizabeth Holmes develops healthcare technology that puts millions of patients at risk and she loses everything in the blink of an eye. Holmes was the former CEO of Theranos, a billion-dollar health technology company. Holmes claimed her company would revolutionize the diagnosis of diseases with a radical blood test. Most of the characters appearing in The Dropout are real people involved in the true story.
This show documents the true story of an Instagram-legendary German heiress named Anna Delvey who conned people into supporting her lavish lifestyle under the guise of her being wealthy and being able to pay them back. This show skyrocketed to fame since so many people these days pretend to be someone they’re not on Instagram.
Hollywood was originally a male-dominated industry, but as time goes on, we progress! In 2022 we have been seeing more and more women direct popular series. Let’s talk about a few of them:
-Lincoln Lawyer is a show about a lawyer who runs his business out of the back of his Lincoln. The show is a 10 episode series directed by 5 different people. Of the ten episodes, three of them are directed by women. Erin Feeley directed 2 episodes and Liz Friedlander directed one.
-A League of Their Own is being released on Prime Video and has multiple women directors. Girl power!
Every Show has a Listen Along Podcast
We are living in an age where we all want to consume, but sometimes we don't want to read! That is the beauty of podcasts. Perfect for when you are driving in the car or simply want to kick back and have someone tell you a story, we have been seeing many more shows come out with a watch along podcast. Here are a few we have seen in the last year!
At the end of the day, Hollywood is all about trends. As some trends come and other trends go, it is common to see them make their return. As we embark on 2023, we look forward to seeing what new trends will emerge from the woodwork. Be sure to tune into The Decorating Pages podcast to stay up to date on the latest Hollywood news.
