Apple orders new Emily Dickinson series with Hailee Steinfeld

Apple has signed a new straight-to-series order for a half-hour show about 19th century poet Emily Dickinson, Variety reports. The series is set to star Hailee Steinfeld in the title role, who is known for 2010’s “True Grit” along with “The Edge of Seventeen,” “Barely Lethal,” “The Homesman,” “Ender’s Game,” and last year’s “Pitch Perfect 3.” Alena Smith will serve as writer and executive producer, alongside David Gordon Green as directed and executive producer; Smith is known for her previous work on Showtime’s “The Affair,” and acclaimed HBO series “The Newsroom,” while Green is best known for directing the films “Pineapple Express,” “Joe,” and “Prince Avalanche.” The series itself is described as being a comedic look into Dickinson’s world as a contrast between the constraints of society, gender, and family and Dickinson’s own imaginative point of view.
