Felicity Huffman will topline Picturehouse’s adaptation of British miniseries “The Politician’s Wife,” to be produced by Sara Risher though her ChickFlicks and Jerry Leider, reports Variety.
Filming is set to begin in May, when Huffman is on hiatus from “Desperate Housewives.”
The 1995 Channel 4 mini concerned an MP’s wife who responds to her husband’s infidelity in unexpected ways. Nicholas Meyer did the adaptation.
Picturehouse’s Bob Berney said Meyer’s screenplay is filled with “intrigue and sexual politics.”
