Danny Boyle and creator Simon Beaufoy say they have much more Getty family saga to mine after the infamous kidnapping story of John Paul Getty III.
The kidnapping of John Paul Getty III is a famous story, but it hasn’t been told the way FX’s new drama Trust will show — and the team behind the series says there’s much more to tell when it comes to the Getty family saga.
“Way, way back, we envisioned this as a five-season series,” exec producer Danny Boyle, who also directs the first three episodes, tells The Hollywood Reporter of his and creator Simon Beaufoy’s plan of bringing the Gettys to FX. “Then they rationalized it — and intensified it — down to three.”
Trust is inspired by the actual events surrounding the disappearance of the teen grandson to J. Paul Getty Sr. (played by Donald Sutherland) and heir to the Getty oil fortune, and takes place in 1973. During the course of 10 episodes, the drama will take a deep dive into the complex kidnapping and the reasons why the richest man in the world refused to pay a multimillion-dollar ransom, which he could certainly afford, in order to return his grandson to safety.

Hilary Swank apologizes for being late for the interview as she and the publicist for the FX series “Trust” took a wrong turn down a hotel corridor. It’s an understandable mistake, especially when you factor in that it has been a few years since the Oscar-winning actress has been part of any kind of promotional press for a project.
“I took care of my dad who had a lung transplant, which is the hardest thing you can undergo. My dad is doing great now, but it was three really tough years. So, I took three years off and so 2017 is my year of getting back into work,” Swank says. “I did two movies and one TV show in a year.”
The films were “Logan Lucky” and “55 Steps,” while the TV production is “Trust,” a series inspired by true events that examines the trials of one of America’s wealthiest and unhappiest families, the Gettys. The series mixes equal parts family history, dynastic saga and an examination of the corrosive power of money at the heart of every family, rich or poor.
The series begins in 1973 with the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III (Harris Dickinson), an heir to the Getty oil fortune, by the Italian mafia in Rome. His captors banked on a multi-million-dollar ransom. What they discovered was Getty was not prepared to pay a dime without a lengthy negotiation process.
