Greta Garbo-Marlene Dietrich Story First TV Project for Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures

New Hollywood pays tribute to old Hollywood: For its first outing in TV, Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures is developing a project focusing on the intersecting lives of Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich.

The untitled project from scribes Angela Robinson (“True Blood,” “Hung”) and Alex Kondracke (“Hung,” “The L Word”) is set in Hollywood’s Golden Age and explores the relationships of the film icons with such legends as John Gilbert, Mercedes de Acosta, Tallulah Bankhead, Alla Nazimova, Barbara Stanwyck, Cary Grant and John Wayne.

Ellison will executive produce. Annapurna’s Stephen Feder will be the executive overseeing day-to-day development and production.

“We’re so excited this project found a home at Annapurna,” stated Robinson and Kondracke. “We couldn’t imagine a better partner than Megan Ellison and the folks at Annapurna to help us bring this series to life.”

Robinson and Kondracke are both repped by WME. The deal was brokered by Ari Greenburg (WME), Eric Suddleson (FTGS Law) and Chris Corabi of Annapurna Pictures.
