Margot Robbie Plans Shakespeare TV Series

Margot Robbie and her LuckyChap Entertainment label are teaming with the Australian Broadcasting Company, Hoodlum Entertainment and ABC Studios International on a new ten-part series.

Currently in development, the untitled project will be led by a female creative team who will produce ten standalone episodes, each based on a celebrated work of William Shakespeare but re-told from a female perspective and updated to comment on our modern, global society.

Series Concept Creator Giula Sandler (‘Nowhere Boys”) will work across the series and will also write one episode. The project will be produced in Australia, with filming expected to begin in 2018.

The series follows on from the three companies producing the crime procedural drama “Harrow” starring Ioan Gruffudd which is currently airing in Australia ahead of a global launch later this year.
