Apple has placed a straight-to-series order for a show on the life of poet Emily Dickinson, according to Variety.

Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) will star as the poet. The show is being described as "a comedic look into Dickinson's world, 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."

Alena Smith (The Affair) is penning and executive producing the series. David Gordon Green (Stronger) will be directing.

Not much else is known about the series right now. Stay with The 405 for more as we hear it.
