Apple has placed a straight-to-series order for a half hour show about 19th century poet Emily Dickinson, reports Variety.

The show is set to star Hailee Steinfeld (Pitch Perfect 3) and is described as a 'comedic look into Dickinson's world'. It will purportedly explore the constraints of society, gender, and family from the perspective of a budding writer who doesn't fit in to her own time.

Alena Smith will write and executive produce and David Gordon Green is set to direct and executive produce. Other executive producers include Alex Goldstone, Michael Sugar, Ashley Zalta, and Darlene Hunt. The series will be produced by Paul Lee’s wiip, Anonymous Content, and Sugar23.

Apple is expected to launch its original programming in early 2019. In March it was reported that the company had made deals for at least twelve projects since October 2017, with nine of them being straight-to-series orders, skipping the pilot episode stage.

It's also rumored that Apple is planning to start selling video service subscriptions directly through the TV app. More details here.
