Hulu has landed for development “The Other Typist”, a TV series adaptation of the novel by Suzanne Rindell, according to Deadline.
Keira Knightley will star in the production. She will also serve as executive producer. Ilene Chaiken will pen the script and also serve as executive producer.
The project comes from Searchlight Television and 20th Century Fox Television.
Set in New York City at the height of the Prohibition era, “The Other Typist” is a psycho-sexual suspense thriller that turns on themes of identity, class, obsession and misplaced (or misunderstood) desire. In it, Rose, a prim, unworldly police department typist gets drawn into the shady world of her glamorous new co-worker, Odalie (Knightley) but when the ultimate crime is committed, it’s uncertain which of the two women was the more treacherous.
There’s no timeline for this project just yet.
