Paramount+’s limited series ‘The Offer’ gives the behind-the-scenes glimpse of the tumultuous making of Francis Ford Coppola’s seminal classic 'The Godfather,' widely considered one of the greatest American films of all time. The series features an ensemble cast and is told from the perspective of producer Al Ruddy (played by Miles Teller).  Al Ruddy takes the main role as he lobbies to get ‘The Godfather’ made at any cost.

The final episode titled 'Brains and Balls' reveals how Ruddy’s determination to make 'The Godfather', finally sees a success. Coppola (Dan Fogler) is freaking out and having a nervous breakdown about how the movie will be received by the audience.
