A series inspired by the film “Hidden Figures” is reportedly being developed by National Geographic.
The film was inspired by book of the same name by Margot Lee Shetterly, which told the true story of the black female mathematicians who were instrumental in the early days of the American space program. It starred Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, and Jim Parsons.
The TV project will be executive produced by Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping. National Geographic will also produce.
