Facebook Orders Dramedy Series Starring Elizabeth Olsen
by Nellie Andreeva 

EXCLUSIVE: Facebook has given a ten-episode straight-to-series order
to a half-hour female-driven dramedy, starring and executive produced
by Elizabeth Olsen. The untitled series (fka Widow), which will run on
streaming platform Facebook Watch, was created and written by Kit
Steinkellner (Z: The Beginning of Everything), with Switched at Birth
creator Lizzy Weiss on board as showrunner and James Ponsoldt (Master
of None) set to executive produce and direct multiple episodes,
including the pilot. The show hails from Big Beach TV and Brillstein
Entertainment Partners.

The Kit Steinkellner/Elizabeth Olsen dramedy, which had been in the
works for awhile, is among the first high-end series ordered by
Facebook as the social media juggernaut is making a push in premium
original content. The project, written on spec by playwright
Steinkellner, had been originally set up at Showtime. Its premise is
not being revealed but Olsen is believed to be playing a young widow
dealing with grief while reconnecting with relationships from her
past. YouTube Red has a similarly themed half-hour pilot, Widow.
