A new limited series is close to being greenlighted by Disney’s Hulu. It will be about the true story of Amanda Knox, who was wrongfully convicted in Italy for the murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher, and it took 16 years before she was set free.

According to Deadline, the project has been a priority at Hulu for a while, and a search is currently underway for an actress to play the lead role. Filming is expected to film later this year.

The untitled limited series is written and executive produced by KJ Steinberg, who has previously worked on “This Is Us”. It will be executive produced by Amanda Knox and Monica Lewinsky, along with Warren Littlefield, who has previously worked on “Fargo” and “The Handmaid’s Tale”. Also producing the limited series are Ann Johnson, Graham Littlefield, Lisa Harrison and Chris Robinson.

20th Television is going to be the studio. It is being produced by The Littlefield Company, who previously created many true-crime limited series for Hulu, including “The Dropout”, “Candy”, and “The Girl from Plainville”, plus the FX series “The Old Man”.

Disney hasn’t officially announced that 20th Television is working on the new limited series.
