The Hollywood Reporter said production began this week on the six-part, alternate-history drama, which is based on Philip Roth's 2004 novel of the same name.

The show is from the perspective of a working-class Jewish family witnessing the political rise of  aviator Charles Lindbergh, who ultimately defeats Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1940 U.S. presidential election.
