Apple lands 'Hedy Lamarr' TV series starring Gal Gadot

Apple recently gave a straight-to-series order for an upcoming TV show about film legend Hedy Lamarr, which is set to star Gal Gadot, reports Variety.

The show follows the true story of actress, film producer, and inventor Hedy Lamarr, who starred in 30 films and co-invented an early version of frequency-hopping spread spectrum.

“Hedy Lamarr” will follow the true story of the legendary Hollywood glamour girl over a 30-year period from her escape from pre-WWII Vienna to her “fall and eventual disgrace at the dawn of the Cold War.”

The series will also explore Lamarr’s contributions as an inventor, including a frequency-hopping system, patented by Lamarr and her friend George Antheil, that became a basis for spread spectrum technology still used today.

The series, which was originally being developed for Showtime, features eight episodes written by Sarah Treem, who previously worked on “The Affair” and “House of Cards.” Gal Gadot, known for “Wonder Woman,” will executive produce and star in the series.

Apple picked up the show after a souring relationship between writer Treem and Showtime after Ruth Wilson, star actress in “The Affair,” left the series. Wilson at the time accused Treem of creating a hostile work environment, which Treem denied, but the dispute ended with Treem cutting ties with Showtime.

The series will join an existing stable of premium and star-studded TV series on Apple TV+, including “Defending Jacob,” “The Morning Show,” and “Dickinson,” as well as a larger slate of upcoming projects.
