Hedy Lamarr Series on Apple TV+ Starring Gal Gadot - In Development

Gal Gadot Series Moves to Apple, F Is for Family Trailer and More

Gal Gadot’s limited series Hedy Lamarr has a new home: Apple TV+ has given a straight-to-series order to the eight-episode drama, executive-produced by Gadot and starring her as the titular screen actress. The project, from The Affair showrunner Sarah Treem, was previously in the works at Showtime.

Film legend Hedy Lamarr was “hailed as ‘the most beautiful woman in the world’… all the while keeping her brilliant mind active through a series of inventions, one of which became the basis for the spread spectrum technology we use today,” per the official synopsis. “The series will follow the incredible life-story of Hollywood glamour girl, spanning 30 years from Hedy’s daring escape from pre-war Vienna; to her meteoric rise in the Golden Age of Hollywood; to her fall and eventual disgrace at the dawn of the Cold War. An epic tale of an immigrant woman both ahead of her time and very much victim to it.”

Gal Gadot-Led ‘Hedy Lamarr’ Series From Sarah Treem Moves To Apple From Showtime

Hedy Lamarr, the Gal Gadot-led eight-episode limited series from The Affair co-creator Sarah Treem, The Handmaid’s Tale producer Warren Littlefield and Endeavor Content, has moved to Apple from Showtime with a straight-to-series order.

The project had been in development at Showtime since August but never received a series order. Per Apple, the series will follow the incredible life-story of the Hollywood glamour girl, played by Gadot, spanning 30 years from Hedy’s daring escape from pre-war Vienna to her meteoric rise in the Golden Age of Hollywood to her fall and eventual disgrace at the dawn of the Cold War. An epic tale of an immigrant woman both ahead of her time and very much victim to it.

The notion for the historical drama originated from Gadot and her husband and producing partner Jaron Varsano (My Dearest Fidel), who then partnered with Littlefield and Treem, the latter of whom created the series.

In addition to Gadot and Treem, Hedy Lamarr will be executive produced by Littlefield and Katie Robbins (The Affair). Gadot and Varsano will produce through their Pilot Wave production company. Adam Haggiag (Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story) and Alexandra Dean (Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story) will serve as co-producers, with Hedy Lamarr’s children Anthony Loder and Denise Deluca consulting on the series. Endeavor Content serves as the studio.

Hedy was one of the most beautiful women to ever grace the screen. Gal Gadot, not so much. They should have made a better selection.

It's a VIRTUAL channel unless stated otherwise.

Don't blame me, it's all Mel Brooks' fault. It should be the Hedley Lamarr series.

Gal Gadot is quite beautiful, but I also don't see much resemblance to the subject.

PBS's 'American Masters' series just had an episode dedicated to Hedy Lamarr this past week. Excellent & informative. She was quite a lady. Catch it if you can.
