Dormer will team up with FremantleMedia and Mainstreet Pictures to create the series. Episode count has not been finalised but the vision is to break down each episode on certain milestones in Leigh’s life. These could include focusing on her long-standing marriage to Laurence Olivier, the classic films she worked on such as Gone with the Wind, to her mental health issues.
Speaking to Deadline Christian Vesper, FremantleMedia Evp and Creative Director, Global Drama said “The story of the legendary movie star will be a compelling exploration of the woman who was transcendently known for some of the most memorable screen performances of all time,”
