Apple TV+ has greenlit Imperfect Women, a new limited drama series starring and executive produced by The Handmaid’s Tale’s Elisabeth Moss and Scandal’s Kerry Washington.

Based on the novel of the same name by Araminta Hall, the series will be adapted for TV and executive produced by Annie Weisman, who previously collaborated with Apple TV+ on the dramedy series Physical, which concluded with a third season last year.

Imperfect Women is a psychological thriller about a crime that shatters the lives and the decades-long friendship of three women. As the investigation unravels, so does the truth about how even the closest relationships can change over time.

The series is a co-production between 20th Television and Apple Studios, and will be executive produced by Moss and Lindsey McManus via their production company Love & Squalor Pictures, who initially optioned the book. Washington will executive produce for Simpson Street alongside Pilar Savone. Author Araminta Hall will also exec produce.

“From the moment I received Araminta’s novel, I couldn’t put it down. It was such an electrifying read; I fell in love with it immediately,” said Moss. “I’ve admired Kerry and her work as an actor and producer for many years and have been looking for something to work with her on and was so thrilled that she responded to the material when we sent it to her and Pilar at Simpson Street.”

Imperfect Women joins an expanding scripted slate for global streamer Apple TV+, with recent orders including an as-yet-untitled comedy about an over-the-hill, ex-pro golfer, starring and executive produced by Owen Wilson; and an adaptation of William Gibson’s science fiction novel Neuromancer.
