Anne Hathaway is set to star in The Ambassador’s Wife, a new limited series that she will also produce.
The series will follow “the kidnapping of an American woman in the Middle East and the heartbreaking choices she and her husband each must make in the hope of being reunited,” according to TheWrap.
“The Ambassador’s Wife is an incredible story that pulls you in immediately and resonates with all of us based on the images and news headlines that are pervasive in our lives today,” producer Mark Gordon said in a statement. “We are so fortunate to have Anne starring in this timely, gripping, and compassionate drama. She is in a league all her own and we cannot think of anyone who can better portray Steil’s complex heroine.”
A network is not yet attached to the project.
