Hailee Steinfeld has been cast as the star of an upcoming half hour comedy series about poet Emily Dickinson.
The unnamed Emily Dickinson series is described as a comedic look into Dickinson’s world, exploring the constraints of society, gender, and family from the perspective of a budding writer who doesn’t fit in to her own time through her imaginative point of view. Steinfeld will star as the 19th Century poet in the series.
Alena Smith serves as writer and executive producer, with David Gordon Green attached to direct and executive produce.
Hailee Steinfeld is an Oscar nominated actress and Platinum selling musical artist.
