Anna Paquin to Star/Produce “Madam X” Mini-series

Anna-Paquin-Stephen-Moyer-Jack-Black

Congratulations to Anna Paquin who is negotiating with HBO to star and produce a new series, Madam X, a period miniseries based on Kate Manning’s book My Notorious Life.. She would be executive producing with her True Blood co-star/producing partner Stephen Moyer through their production company CASM and actor Jack Black through his Electric Dynamite banner.

Written by Julia Hart (The Keeping Room) and to be directed by Lynn Shelton (Your Sister’s Sister), Madame X, which will go through development, is set in Victorian New York City. Described as “a love story, a family saga, and the confessions of a charismatic and passionate woman who changed the lives of countless others”, it centers on Axie Muldoon (Paquin), one of the wealthiest and controversial women of her day. Inspired by the story of an infamous female physician, Axie helped her husband build a thriving midwife business and defied the law in the name of women’s reproductive rights.

Paquin, Moyer and Black would executive produce with Cerise Larkin and Mark Larnin of Untold Pictures and Priyanka Mattoo (Ghost Ghirls).

    Could I be so bold as to hope for shooting at The Mount?!? Period is right; I could help the production team scout locations. Ok I will stop fan girling now ;-)

    Can’t wait on this series!  #1 I love these type series #2 of course I love Anna Paquin
    Also glad to see they wised up about Anna’s role in The Rogue – it would not have been wise (my opinion) to leave it out especially if you saw the original.
