Natalie Portman & Lupita Nyong'o to Star in Apple Series 'Lady in the Lake'!

Natalie Portman and Lupita Nyong’o are about to be co-stars!

The Academy Award winners will star in the Apple TV+ series Lady in the Lake, based on a novel by Laura Lippman, THR reported Wednesday (March 10).

It also marks Natalie‘s first regular role on television, and Lupita‘s first American series, who had previously been attached to Americanah before it was scrapped at HBO Max.

Apple has already given a straight-to-series order to the upcoming project.

Here’s a plot summary: “Lady in the Lake is set in Baltimore in the 1960s, where an unsolved murder pushes housewife and mother Maddie Schwartz (Portman) to reinvent herself as an investigative reporter. Her new calling puts her on a collision course with Cleo Sherwood (Nyong’o), who juggles motherhood, several jobs and a commitment to the city’s Black progressive agenda.”

Natalie is currently working on Thor: Love and Thunder. Another star of the Marvel movie’s character was just revealed!
