Hailee Steinfeld stars in the upcoming Apple TV+ series Dickinson, a period comedy-drama series that puts a bit of a modern touch on the story of the renowned American poet, Emily Dickinson.
The series follows Dickinson as a young woman, as she battles the gender constraints of the time and how they relate to family, society, and her dreams to become a successful poet. Steinfeld is quite the talent (the fact she was nominated for an Oscar at just 13 for True Grit was a sure sign of a promising future), and she looks to be perfect for what appears to be a gorgeous production. As the for the show itself, it remains to be seen if some of the trailer’s heavy-handedness stains the series overall, but we certainly look forward to finding out. The series is created by Alena Smith, whose TV writing credits include The Affair and Newsroom.
Steinfeld, by the way, will very likely be seen in the Marvel realm very soon; she’s all but been officially announced as Kate Bishop, the co-lead character in the Jeremy Renner-starring Hawkeye series.
Dickinson, also starring Jane Krakowski, Toby Huss, Anna Baryshnikov, Ella Hunt, and Adrian Blake Enscoe, with Wiz Khalifa on board as a guest star, will be available when Apple TV+ launches on November 1 (yes, in Australia as well).
Dickinson is a half-hour comedy series starring Oscar®nominee Hailee Steinfeld. Created by Alena Smith, Dickinson audaciously explores the constraints of society, gender, and family from the perspective of rebellious young poet Emily Dickinson.
Created, written and executive produced by Alena Smith and executive produced by Hailee Steinfeld, “Dickinson” stars Hailee Steinfeld, Jane Krakowski, Toby Huss, Anna Baryshnikov, Ella Hunt, and Adrian Blake Enscoe. Wiz Khalifa guest stars.
