Apple TV+ is developing a brand-new series starring Natalie Portman. The actress’s debut on television was in Lady in the Lake. I’m thrilled to have her on board since she is so skilled.
Portman is also one of the show’s executive producers. Dre Ryan and Alma Har’el wrote the limited series together. Also directing will be Har’el. Executive producers are both of the co-creators. The movie Lady in the Lake is based on the same-named novel by Laura Lippman. The project’s executive producer will also be the author.
Here’s everything we know about the upcoming series!
