If you love classic Hollywood icons, we've got a new TV show to keep on your radar: Hedy Lamarr, a new eight-episode limited series in the works for Apple TV+. The miniseries will star and be executive produced by Gal Gadot of Wonder Woman fame and center on the fascinating career of Lamarr, who rose to fame in the 1930s and 1940s.

So what can we expect about the bound-to-be intriguing series? "Hailed as 'the most beautiful woman in the world,' Hedy Lamarr was first exalted and iconized, then destroyed and eventually forgotten by American audiences, all the while keeping her brilliant mind active through a series of inventions, one of which became the basis for the spread spectrum technology we use today," the Apple TV+ press release says of Lamarr's storied background. "The series will follow the incredible life story of the Hollywood glamour girl, spanning 30 years from Hedy’s daring escape from prewar Vienna, to her meteoric rise in the Golden Age of Hollywood, to her fall and eventual disgrace at the dawn of the Cold War. An epic tale of an immigrant woman both ahead of her time and very much a victim to it," the press release continues.

The historical drama will be available on Apple TV+, which is available on Apple devices, select Samsung and LG smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV, Roku devices, and at tv.apple.com, for $4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial.  Currently, Apple has not released any further information about when the show will debut.
