Lesley Frowick has told WWD that the series, full of cocaine snorting, models, and lavish spending, is not an accurate representation of the real Halston.

‘They did not approach us at all so this is in fact an unauthorized series about my uncle’s life”

McGregor, in an interview with the Associated Press, has reacted to the families displeasures.

He tells that “such care” was taken whilst making the series and he is unsure “what it is that they’re not happy about.”
