AppleTV+ Gives Series Order to Limited Series 'Imperfect Women' Starring Elisabeth Moss and Kerry Washington

AppleTV+ has today given a series order to the original limited series Imperfect Women starring Emmy Award winners Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale, Shining Girls) and Kerry Washington (Scandal, Little Fires Everywhere). 

Based on the novel by Araminta Hall, the unconventional, psychological thriller will examine a crime that shatters the lives of a decades-long friendship of three women. The mystery is complicated by perspective that explores guilt and retribution, love and betrayal, and the compromises we make that alter our lives irrevocably. As the investigation unravels, so does the truth about how even the closest relationships can change over time.

Annie Weisman developed the series. She will executive produce with Moss, Washington, Hall, Lindsey McManus and Pilar Savone. Apple Studios, 20th Television, Love & Squalor Pictures and Simpson Street Productions will produce.

"From the moment I received Araminta's novel, I couldn't put it down," said Moss. "It was such an electrifying read; I fell in love with it immediately. I've admired Kerry and her work as an actor and producer for many years and have been looking for something to work with her on and was so thrilled that she responded to the material when we sent it to her and Pilar at Simpson Street. They were the first and only people we thought of. We are so happy that Apple and 20th Television agreed to partner with us on this, as well. It's all an absolute match made in heaven."

"I could not have been more thrilled to get this call from Elisabeth," added Washington. "I have been an immense fan of hers - both as a brilliant actor and groundbreaking producer - for years. Elisabeth and Lindsey have impeccable taste, as evidenced by the way they have championed Araminta's gripping novel, and I can't think of a better person to bring this project to life on screen than the amazing Annie Weisman. Imperfect Women is exactly the type of exciting, complex, raw storytelling we strive to create at Simpson Street. Pilar and I are tremendously inspired by the opportunity to team up with Love & Squalor Pictures, and we are thankful to everyone at Apple Studios and the team at 20th Television for believing in this project as much as we do."

"I'm honored that Apple is once again trusting me to help bring complex, layered female characters to the screen," shared Weisman. "Elisabeth, Kerry, and Araminta are the perfect collaborators to bring these Imperfect Women to life."
