“The Offer” is now available to watch on Paramount Plus. The miniseries focuses on the behind-the-scenes drama that unfolded during the production of “The Godfather” in the 1970s.
“The Godfather” is widely regarded as one of the greatest American films ever made and ranks third on AFI 100 Years List…100 Films. But, while the hard work of the filmmakers ultimately paid off, the film was far from an easy production. “The Offer” focuses on all the challenges encountered during the development of the film.

Matthew Goode stars as Paramount studio boss Robert Evans (Matthew Goode), who chooses producer Albert S. Ruddy (Miles Teller) to turn the novel “The Godfather” into a movie. With ambitious director Francis Ford Coppola (Dan Fogler) on hand, production should be straightforward. But getting the script right and casting the right actors presents one problem after another. The situation is further complicated when crime boss Joe Colombo (Giovanni Ribisi) opposes the film.
The 10-episode limited series also features Juno Temple as Bettye McCartt, Justin Chambers as Marlin Brando, Anthony Ippolito as Al Pacino, Cynthia Aileen-Strahan as Talia Shire, and Damion Conrad-Davis as James Caan. The show is based on the experiences of Albert S. Ruddy, who is also one of the series’ executive producers.
