Scarlett Johansson Headed to TV in Eight Episode Limited Series
Scarlett Johansson just booked a major television gig – she will star in and executive produce the upcoming limited series The Custom of the Country.
The 29-year-old actress will play a woman whose “rise to the top of New York’s high society from her nouveau riche roots provides a provocative and thoroughly modern commentary on the upwardly mobile and the aspirations that eventually cause their ruin,” according to Deadline.
The series will consist of eight episodes and it will likely be picked up by a cable or premium cable network.
The Custom of the Country is based on the novel by Pulitzer Prize winner Edith Wharton, which was published back in 1913.
