Lady In The Lake – TBD (Pre-Production)
Natalie Portman and her fellow Star Wars, MCU, and Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o will soon cross Lady in the Lake when the drama series based on Laura Lipman’s novel of the same name lands on Apple TV + at some point in The Near Future. Per Variety, the limited series will be set in Baltimore in the 1960s and will follow housewife and mother Maddie Schwartz (Natalie Portman) as her life changes after an unsolved murder and she becomes an investigative journalist. Nyong’o will play Cleo Sherwood, a woman who focuses on supporting her family with multiple jobs and devoting much of her life to the city’s black progressive movement.
Lady in the Lake was first announced in March 2021. So it remains to be seen when the show lands on the Apple TV + streaming service or when production starts due to the busy schedules of the show’s two stars, including Lupita Nyong, and I’m part of the cast of Black Panther 2.
