Here’s a description: “Set in New York City at the height of the Prohibition era, The Other Typist is a psycho-sexual suspense thriller that turns on themes of identity, class, obsession and misplaced (or misunderstood) desire. In it, Rose, a prim, unworldly police department typist gets drawn into the shady world of her glamorous new co-worker, Odalie (Knightley) but when the ultimate crime is committed, it’s uncertain which of the two women was the more treacherous.”

The original novel, published in 2013, has garnered comparisons to The Great Gatsby.

Also of note: “This would mark the biggest TV commitment to date for Knightley who, with the exception of the 2011 Neverland miniseries, has been focused entirely on features since bursting into the scene with the 2002 hit Bend It Like Beckham,” Deadline reports.

Meanwhile, in quarantine, Keira recently showed off this fun party trick…
