March 10 (UPI) -- Apple TV+ said Wednesday it has ordered a limited series based on Laura Lippman's novel, Lady in the Lake.
The series is about an unsolved murder that "pushes housewife and mother Maddie Schwartz to reinvent her life as an investigative journalist and sets her on a collision course with Cleo Sherwood, a hard-working woman juggling motherhood, many jobs and a passionate commitment to advancing Baltimore's Black progressive agenda," a press release said.
Lady in the Lake will be executive produced and written by Alma Har'el and Dre Ryan.
Har'el also will direct the project.
"2020 The one & only Natalie Portman took me to the Oscars on her cape alongside some of my favorite women directors. ... One plague later, I get to burn the screen with her & the masterful Lupita Nyong'o Thank you to the whole team and to Laura Lipman #Ladyinthelake," Har'el tweeted.
