JJ Abrams and Meryl Streep are teaming up for “The Nix,” a new TV series adaptation of Nathan Hill’s much talked about first novel “The Nix”.
The sprawling generational tale focuses on a hippie-era mother who gets national press exposure for throwing rocks at a conservative governor on the presidential campaign trail.
Soon her estranged son – a professor, aspiring novelist and general underachiever – seizes an opportunity to get himself out of debt by writing a scathing profile of his estranged mother.
Warner Bros Television are behind the project which both Abrams and Streep will produce. Streep will star in the series, while Abrams will likely direct at least some of the episodes.
