The eight-episode limited series project from ‘The Affair’ co-creator Sarah Treem and ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ producer Warren Littlefield was initially reserved for cable network Showtime.
AceShowbiz -“Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot‘s new drama about Hollywood star-turned-inventor Hedy Lamarr has been handed a straight-to-series run by bosses at Apple.
The eight-episode limited series from “The Affair” co-creator Sarah Treem and “The Handmaid’s Tale” producer Warren Littlefield was earmarked to debut on U.S. cable network Showtime, but executives there never pulled the trigger on the project and so Apple executives have jumped in to pick up the show, which follows the “Samson and Delilah” star’s career over three decades.
It’s a passion project for Gadot and her husband and producing partner Jaron Varsano, who brought Treem and Littlefield on board to help them develop the series.
Lamarr’s children, Anthony Loder and Denise Deluca, will consult on the project.
The beloved silver screen siren died in 2000, aged 85.
