This series is loosely based on the dystopian novel by Canadian(Eh?) author Margaret Atwood that was published in 1985.The basis of the novel is that the United States has been taken over by Totalitarian Theocracy(how timely)and it explores how women deal with the subjugation of this society.
I’ve been a fan of Elizabeth Moss since” The West Wing “,and became an even bigger fan of hers after watching “Mad Men” where she played ad exec Peggy Olsen. I’m also a fan of Samira Wiley’s work from “Orange is the New Black”. Those two actresses and the author of the source material are enough to have me take a look.
Series premieres April 26th on Hulu
