Phil Morrison is the project's director and executive producer, while Robin Veith is writing the screenplay and will also serve as an executive producer.
"I'm so honored to be working with the incredible team of collaborators we have pulled together with Phil, Robin, BBC America and Annapurna [Television.] I look forward to telling this story about one of the most infamous women in America, 'Typhoid Mary,' a woman whose true tale has never been told. She was an immigrant in turn-of-the-century New York, a time of huge change and progress in America. She was incredibly unique, stubborn, ambitious and in fierce denial of any wrongdoing until her death where she lived out her days imprisoned on an island just off of the Bronx in New York. She is incredibly complicated, something I seem to enjoy playing," Moss said in a statement.
Moss is known for her work in the TV dramas The West Wing, Mad Men, Top of the Lake and The Handmaid's Tale. .
