Angelyne review: Emmy Rossum shines in a loopy love letter to an L.A. legend

Television simply can't stop telling us the truth. So far this year, we've seen shows about the shameless (Anna Delvey, Joe Exotic), the infamous (Elizabeth Holmes, Adam Neumann, Travis Kalanick), the murderous (Candy Montgomery, Pam Hupp), and the unscrupulous (Michelle Carter). Now comes Peacock's Angelyne, which spotlights a figure fully nebulous: Los Angeles billboard queen and living (urban) legend Angelyne Llyne. Technically, it's a biography, but the limited series starring a fully committed Emmy Rossum manages to feel like something new — a loving and loopy celebration of a woman who took back her power by burning down her past.

‘Angelyne,’ Starring Emmy Rossum as L.A.’s Billboard Queen, Is Best When Embracing the Gloriously Tackiness of Its Subject: TV Review

Click here to read the full article. Stay in Los Angeles long enough, and you’ll have an Angelyne story. Decades after plastering the city in mysterious billboards bearing her name and Barbie-esque silhouette, the self-made urban legend can still be found zipping through the streets in her signature Corvette, a flash of bubblegum pink on the desert horizon. While less ubiquitous than she once was, Angelyne remains a hyper-local symbol of a Hollywood dream come to plasticene life. She was famous, as the often derisive saying goes, for being famous and not much more — which is, as the new...
