'Ms.' Miniseries in the Works with Marisa Tomei Playing Gloria Steinem

HBO is developing a miniseries called “Ms.,” which will depict the creation of Ms. Magazine through the eyes of one of its founders, Gloria Steinem. The Wrap announced Monday that Oscar winner Marisa Tomei will play Steinem, while Kathy Najimy (who currently plays a recurring character on HBO’s "Veep") will play U.S. Representative Bella Abzug

Tomei and Najimy are also executive producing the project, while Steinem serves as a consultant. Bruce Cohen, the producer behind “American Beauty” and “Silver Linings Playbook,” joins the executive production team along with George Clooney and Grant Heslov (“Argo,” “The Ides of March”). 

With this much dedicated star power and the blessing of Steinem herself, “Ms.” already looks like a dream come true. We’ll keep you updated as new news develops. For now, hear about Ms. Magazine and the women’s movement in Gloria’s own words:
