Apple TV+ has picked up a limited TV series on the life of Hedy Lamrr from Showtime, which stars Gal Gadot.

The series will cover 40 years of the American-Austrian actress’s life as a film producer and inventor starting from when she left Austria just before World War II, to her meteoric rise in the Golden Age of Hollywood and finally her fall and eventual disgrace at the dawn of the Cold War. It will then go into her life as an inventor – she was a pioneer in the field of wireless communications and is known for the invention of spread spectrum technology, which are used today in bluetooth and wi-fi.

The mini-series was created by showrunners Sarah Treem (The Affair) with Warren Littlefield (The Handmaid’s Tale).
