Dickinson is set during Emily Dickinson’s era with a modern sensibility and tone. It’ll take viewers into the world of Emily, audaciously exploring the constraints of society, gender and family from the perspective of a budding writer who doesn’t fit in to her own time through her imaginative point of view. The comedy is Emily’s coming-of-age story, one woman’s fight to get her voice heard.
Jane Krakowski (whose credits include 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) will be playing the role of Mrs. Dickinson, Emily’s mother.
Alena Smith will serve as executive producer alongside David Gordon Green, Michael Sugar and Ashley Zalta for Sugar23 Productions, Alex Goldstone for Anonymous Content and Darlene Hunt.
