'DICKINSON' COMEDY SERIES
1ST HAILEE STEINFELD PHOTOS
Speaking of period set projects, check out the first photos from Apple's half hour 1800s set comedy series DICKINSON showing Hailee Steinfeld as the famous poet Emily Dickinson! The comedy series will audaciously explore the constraints of society, gender, and family from the perspective of a budding writer who doesn’t fit in to her own time through her imaginative point of view. You can see this from one of the photos in which she is dressed as a boy and in one where she is smoking a cigar outside her elite school for girls. The cast also includes Toby Huss as her father Edward Dickinson, Jane Krakowski as her mother, Anna Baryshnikov as her younger sister Lavinia, Ella Hunt as her best friend Sue Gilbert, and Adrian Blake Enscoe as Emily's brother Austin.
