Sony TV is remaking Norman Lear’s 1970s classic, ‘Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.’
“The updated Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman is about a small-town woman (Hampshire) who feels like a nobody in every aspect of her life until she suddenly becomes a “Verified” social media somebody. The remake will bring the original show’s satirical look at consumer culture into today’s social [me]dia world, where “America’s Typical Consumer Housewife” has now become the product consumed when her nervous breakdown goes viral.”
Hampshire will star, co-write, and executive produce. Jacob Tierney of Letterkenny will also co-write.
