The TV show, which will be coming to Apple TV+, is based on 2013 novel "The Shining Girls" from Lauren Beukes, and it will be executive produced by Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way production company.

The book focuses on Kirby Mizrachi, a Chicago reporter who survives an attempted murder by a time-traveling Depression-era serial killer and then teams up with a homicide reporter to track down her would-be killer and bring him to justice. Moss will play the woman who is attacked and then hunts down the murderer.

In addition to starring in the series, Moss will also serve as an executive producer alongside DiCaprio. Moss is best known for shows like "The Handmaid's Tale" and "Mad Men," but she has also starred in several movies like "Us" and "The Invisible Man."

"The Shining Girls" joins several other drama series at ‌Apple TV+‌, such as "Defending Jacob," "Truth Be Told," and "The Morning Show." There's no word yet on when it will be released.

This sounds right up my alley. I'm not sure I'll like it though - I absolutely hate Elisabeth Moss as a person due to her scientology connections and some of the comments she has made in general.

Isn’t she most known for «Mad Men»?
Should be, but I suppose if whoever wrote that is an 18-19yo, mad men ran and ended by the time they were 13-14, so they may have just seen it on her IMDb and thought it sounded like some old show their parents watched. Moss was essential & absolutely spectacular as the viewers eyes & ears into that world.

I get it, you guys like Mad Men. I've just never seen it so it didn't immediately come to mind. Added it to the article, apologies for the omission!
