Facebook orders a half-hour dramedy series starring Elizabeth Olsen

Deadline reports that Facebook has given a 10-episode, straight-to-series order to a half-hour, female-driven dramedy starring Elizabeth Olsen (Avengers: Infinity War), who is also executive producing the series alongside James Pondsoldt (Master of None) and showrunner Lizzy Weiss (Switched at Birth).

The series was created by Kit Steinkellner (Z: The Beginning of Everything) and was previously set up at Showtime under the working title Widow. There is little known about the project, but Olsen is believed to be playing a young widow dealing with grief while she reconnects with relationships from her past.

Speaking on the project, Olsen said: “I couldn’t be prouder of the group we have brought together for this show. Kit’s story has been near and dear to me for years and I can’t wait to share our dark, funny, and complicated show with the world.”

The series will also be executive produced by Robin Schwartz, Marc Turtletaub, and Peter Saraf for Big Beach TV, along with Cynthia Pett, Brad Petrigala, and Joe Liebman for Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

Facebook is making a push into premium original content, with Olsen’s new series being one of the first high-end series ordered by the social media platform.
