* This is the basic premise of ''Series/BoJackHorseman'', detailing the shattering life of a washed-up FunnyAnimal actor and his desperate attempts to be happy in a life he hates. Special attention is put to the damage done to child actors, which haunts Bojack in particular since he worked on a sitcom full of them.

* MarioPuzo's ''The Last Don'' portrays Hollywood as being substantially more ruthless than the ''Mafia.'' [[TakeThatUs Puzo was himself a screenwriter]] (he wrote the screenplay for ''Superman'', among others.)
** In one of its longer subplots, ''Film/TheGodfather'' follows Johnny Fontaine's adventures into this. It includes planned orgies, doctors who will ignore a patient's health to keep them going, and studio boss Jack Woltz molesting an underage girl (with her mother's consent, though not her own). Mob [[TheConsigliere Consigliere]] Tom Hagen thinks to himself that if this is the world Johnny wants, [[EvenEvilHasStandards he can have it]].
