Apple TV+ is set to drop a new period comedy miniseries. Titled Mrs. American Pie, the show is based on the novel Mr. and Mrs. American Pie by Juliet McDaniel. The show is created by Abe Sylvia and directed by Tate Taylor, who previously worked on The Help, Get on Up, and The Girl on the Train. Deadline describes the show’s plotline as follows: “Mrs. American Pie is a story about gorgeously impossible people. Set during the powder keg era of the early 1970s, it follows Maxine Simmons (Kristen Wiig) and her attempt to secure her seat at America’s most exclusive table: Palm Beach high society. As Maxine attempts to cross that impermeable line between the haves and the have-nots, the series asks the same questions that baffle us today: Who gets a seat at the table, how do you get a seat at the table, and what will you sacrifice to get there?” Mrs. American Pie features an ensemble cast of A-list performers.
