Apple TV+ has signed a series order for "Mrs. American Pie," a 10-episode comedy set to star Kristen Wiig.
"Mrs. American Pie" follows Maxine Simmons, a woman attempting to cross the line between the haves and have-nots and secure her spot in the high society of 1970s Palm Beach. As the series progresses, Maxine will need to ask herself, "How do you get a seat at the table, and what will you sacrifice to get there?"
The series will be based on Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards Finalist Juliet McDaniel's "Mr. and Mrs. American Pie," and developed by Laura Dern ("Little Big Lies.")
Kristin Wiig ("Saturday Night Live") is set to play Maxine, with Dern eyeing a key role, according to Apple. Abe Sylvia ("Dead to Me") will serve as writer, showrunner, and executive producer.
