Apple TV+ is setting up some more projects with big names. “Lady in the Lake,” a new limited series directed and co-written by Alma Har’el just got a straight-to-series order, with Academy Award winners Lupita Nyong’o and Natalie Portman set to star.
All three will serve as executive producers alongside Dre Ryan, who will co-create and co-write the series with Har’el.
“Lady in the Lake” is an adaptation of Laura Lippman’s New York Times best-selling novel of the same name. The limited series takes place in ’60s Baltimore, where an unsolved murder pushes housewife and mother Maddie Schwartz (Portman) to reinvent her life as an investigative journalist and sets her on a collision course with Cleo Sherwood (Nyong’o), a hard-working woman juggling motherhood, many jobs and a passionate commitment to advancing Baltimore’s Black progressive agenda.
