Oscar-winning actor Anne Hathaway is the latest Hollywood star to try her hand at television, signing on to star in the forthcoming mini-series The Ambassador’s Wife.
“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,” said Mark Gordon 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.”
However, the lure of the limited or mini-series, which lacks the open-ended commitment required by traditional series, has proved powerful to Hollywood stars in recent years.
Hathaway appears next on the big screen alongside Robert De Niro in The Intern, and has also signed up to star in forthcoming monster movie Colossal, which is being described as a cross between Lost in Translation and Godzilla.
