Based on the novel by best-selling author Margaret Atwood, the series stars Elisabeth Moss as Offred, Joseph Fiennes as The Commander, Yvonne Strahovski as Serena Joy, Samira Wiley as Moira, Alexis Bledel as Ofglen, Max Minghella as Nick, Madeline Brewer as Janine, Ann Dowd as Aunt Lydia, and O-T Fagbenle as Luke.
The drama series is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly part of the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world. In this terrifying society where one wrong word could end her life, Offred navigates between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.”
The Handmaid’s Tale comes to Hulu from MGM Television and is created, executive produced and written by Bruce Miller. Executive produced by Warren Littlefield, Daniel Wilson and Fran Sears, andj Ilene Chaiken. MGM will serve as the international distributor for the series.
