Deadline is reporting that Toby Huss, Anna Baryshnikov, Ella Hunt and Adrian Enscoe are the latest names to join the cast of Apple comedy series Dickinson.
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.
Toby Huss (whose credits include The Front Runner and Sacred Lies) will be playing the role of Edward Dickinson, Emily’s father. Anna Baryshnikov (whose credits include Manchester By The Sea and Superior Donuts) will be playing the role of Lavinia Dickinson, Emily’s younger sister. Ella Hunt (whose credits include Cold Feet and Summer Night) will be playing the role of Sue Gilbert, Emily’s best friend. Adrian Enscoe (whose credits We Don’t Belong Here and Seeds) will be playing the role of Austin Dickinson, Emily’s brother.
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.
