HBO to Air Winslet Miniseries


The winner of next year’s Emmy for Best Actress in a Miniseries was all but announced today, as HBO confirmed (after months of rumors) that it has picked up the five-hour miniseries Mildred Pierce starring Kate Winslet. Pierce is an adaptation of James M. Cain’s 1941 novel, in which a despondent single mother (Winslet) tries to win the love of her daughter in Great Depression-era Los Angeles. The miniseries will be directed by Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven), with production to begin in April.
