Late this afternoon there’s news that Jane Krakowski has joined the cast of the upcoming Apple series “Dickinson,” created by Alena Smith and produced by Apple’s worldwide video programming division. The comedy series follows renowned poet Emily Dickinson, who will be played by Hailee Steinfeld. Krakowski will play Mrs. Dickinson, Emily’s mother.
Dickinson takes place during Emily Dickinson’s era with a modern sensibility and tone.

Dickinson is Emily’s coming-of-age story – one woman’s fight to get her voice heard
