Dream Casting Audrey Hepburn for the TV Series About the Actress
A TV series about Hollywood icon and acclaimed actress Audrey Hepburn is officially in the works.
The project, titled Audrey, isn’t currently attached to a network but is being helmed by U.S. writer and producer Jacqueline Hoyt (The Good Wife, The Leftovers). The show is being produced by Italy’s Fremantle company Wildside, the name behind titles like The Young Pope and My Brilliant Friend.
According to Variety, Hepburn’s formative years will be explored in the series inspired by work co-written by Hepburn’s son Luca Dotti and Italian journalist Luigi Spinola. Not many details about the show’s plot have been unveiled at this time, but it will be one of the first major projects to bring Hepburn’s life to the screen.
The actress is considered one of the most recognizable faces of the past century with memorable roles in films such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Roman Holiday, Sabrina, and My Fair Lady. Along with her impact on both film and fashion, Hepburn was also known as an exceptional humanitarian, lending her support to UNICEF.
With the series on the horizon, we can’t help but come up with a few dream casting options. Below, some of the actresses we think could be a good fit to portray the legend on TV.
