Matt Bomer's The Last Tycoon Gets Series Order at Amazon

Last Tycoon Series Order

You have not seen the last of The Last Tycoon.

Amazon has ordered the Matt Bomer-fronted pilot to series, our sister site Deadline reports, some six weeks after the pilot was offered for consumer review on the streaming site.

A Great Depression-era drama adapted from the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, The Last Tycoon stars Bomer (White Collar) as a Hollywood golden boy battling his father figure and boss (played by four-time Emmy winner Kelsey Grammer) for the soul of their studio; Lily Collins (The Blind Side) co-stars.

Meanwhile, Deadline hears, The Interestings — whose pilot also premiered on June 17, with a cast that included Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under), David Krumholtz (Numb3rs) and  Jessica Pare (Mad Men) — will not be going to series.

Amazon’s next batch of pilots-for-preview — including The Tick, plus series starring Kevin Bacon and Jean-Claude Van Damme — will hit the service on Aug. 19.
