Murder On The Orient Express Is Sneakily Making A Lot Of Money

Elizabeth Olsen may have gotten in the acting game much later than her older sisters, but now she’s finally managed to appear on a medium they haven’t. Olsen is headed to television after a straight-to-series order of a tentatively titled project called Widow that will serve as the beginning of Facebook entering the arena of legitimate television programming. Olsen will star in the series, which has been reported to be a half-hour dramedy.

Widow will run for 10 episodes and will tell the tale of a young grieving widow who reconnects with lovers she’s had in the past. Not much is known about the project or Olsen’s character beyond that, as even the series’ name is not rock-solid at this point.

Elizabeth Olsen will executive produce the tentatively titled series along with James Ponsoldt, who will also direct multiple episodes of the show. Lizzy Weiss is also on the executive producer’s list and will serve as Widow‘s show-runner. The series will be among the first of high-end content Facebook will bring to its platform, as the social media site is making a real effort towards making premium original content available on its Facebook Watch platform.

I couldn’t be prouder of the group we have brought together for this show. Kit’s story has been near and dear to me for years and I can’t wait to share our dark, funny, and complicated show with the world.

Elizabeth Olsen’s tentatively titled Widow series has a home at Facebook, but no release date to speak of just yet. For a look at some upcoming television shows that have release dates and will be coming to television in the early months of 2018, head on over to our mid-season premiere guide.
