Despite COVID causing all sorts of problems when it comes to filming, we haven’t been without seriously addictive TV to binge-watch throughout lockdown over the past 12 months. Now that the film industry is gradually getting back on its feet, we were excited to hear The Good Wife creator Jacqueline Hoyt reveal that she is officially working on a TV series about the life of Breakfast at Tiffany‘s star, Audrey Hepburn.
Inspired by a treatment written by Hepburn’s son, Luca Dotti, and the Italian journalist Luigi Spinola. Dotti and Spinola previously co-authored Audrey at Home, a part-biography, part-cookbook combining anecdotes and excerpts from Hepburn’s correspondence, her recipes and unpublished family photographs in 2015.
According to Variety, their research has intensified, in particular when it comes to Hepburn’s formative years, which the new TV series will explore.
Titled Audrey, the TV series will begin during Audrey’s early years in Europe and trace her journey to becoming a Hollywood legend before her death in 1993 at 63 from a battle with cancer.
Who will star in Audrey?
It is not yet known or been revealed who will play Audrey Hepburn in the TV series. It is undoubtedly a huge role to fill and we can’t wait to see who is chosen for the highly prized role of the screen icon.
When will Audrey be released?
Given that The Good Wife creator Jacqueline Hoyt has only just revealed that she is working on the TV series we think it could be some time yet before Audrey is on our screens.
Who is producing Audrey?
The series is set to be produced by Italy’s Wildside, the company behind HBO’s adaptation of Elena Ferrante’s My Brilliant Friend. Hepburn’s son, Luca Dotti, and journalist Luigi Spinola are also set to serve as executive producers.
