Finally be Apple, and not Showtime as announced in August 2018 the one that supports the miniseries about Hedy Lamarr, still without a definite title to star in Gal Gadot based on a script signed by Sarah Treem.
According to Variety, the project would have changed homes due to the deterioration of the relationship between Treem and Showtime after Ruth Wilson’s controversial departure from ‘The Affair’.
