Disney’s ABC Signature Studios is developing a new limited series series that is inspired by the true story of a Midwestern couple who adopts who they believe is an 8-year-old girl with a rare form of dwarfism. But as they begin to raise her alongside their three biological children, they slowly start to believe she may not be who she says she is.

The series is currently going by the working title of “Untitled Orphan Project”, as the name for the show hasn’t been confirmed.

According to Deadline, two-time Academy Award nominee Liz Garbus is going to be directing and executive producing the show.   She has previously directed some episodes of “The Handmaid’s Tale”, which earned her an Emmy nomination for “Best Directing”.  She has also worked on ” What Happened, Miss Simone?” and the Netflix series, “Harry and Meghan”.  Liz Garbus also shared the article on her social media, which would seemingly confirm its true.

The eight-episode show will also star Ellen Pompeo, who is stepping away from “Grey’s Anatomy” to make the series and will also be an executive producer through her production banner Calamity Jane with Laura Holstein.  The project was created and written by Katie Robbins (The Affair). Erin Levy will serve as showrunner on the series and executive produce alongside Robbins. Other exec producers are Andrew Stearn, Niles Kirschner, Mike Epps and Dan Spilo.

This untitled limited series is going to be released on Hulu in the United States, and we should expect to see the series released as a Star Original on Disney+ internationally.
