Hailee Steinfeld To Play Poet Emily Dickinson in Apple's 'Dickinson' Series

Hailee Steinfeld is set to play American poet Emily Dickinson, in Apple’s new show, Dickinson.

Penned by Alena Smith, the series will be set in the late 1800s with a modern sensibility and tone.

Dickinson will takes viewers into the world of Emily, audaciously exploring the constraints of society, gender, and family from the perspective of a budding writer who doesn’t fit in to her own time through her imaginative point of view.

The show is Emily’s coming-of-age story – one woman’s fight to get her voice heard.
