Natalie Portman and Lupita Nyong'o have signed on to star in a new Apple TV+ series titled Lady in the Lake. The series, which will be an adaption from the Laura Lipman novel of the same name, has received a straight-to-series order from Apple.
As reported by Variety, Portman and Nyong'o will also serve as executive producers of the series.

Both Portman and Nyong'o are powerhouses in Hollywood. Portman won an Academy Award for Black Swan and has also starred in V for Vendetta, Annihilation, and the Star Wars prequels. Nyong'o also won an Academy Award for her role in 12 Years a Slave and has also starred in Black Panther and Us.
