DESCRIPTION:
(from FX's press release, May 2019) FX today announced more of the extraordinary cast that will join two-time Academy(R) Award and Golden Globe(R) Award winning actor Cate Blanchett in the upcoming limited series Mrs. America. The nine-episode series will premiere on FX in 2020. FX also announced that Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck, who most recently co-wrote and directed the blockbuster feature Captain Marvel, will direct the first two episodes of Mrs. America and serve as Executive Producers. Mrs. America tells the story of the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), and the unexpected backlash led by a conservative woman named Phyllis Schlafly, played by Blanchett. Through the eyes of the women of that era - both Schlafly and second wave feminists Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Shirley Chisholm, Bella Abzug and Jill Ruckelshaus - the series explores how one of the toughest battlegrounds in the culture wars of the 70s helped give rise to the Moral Majority and forever shifted our political landscape.
