The show stars Hailee Steinfeld, who is seen crying at a dinner table in period costume in the teaser, as the titular author. Jane Krakowski and Matt Lauria also star.

Additionally, the teaser clip showed footage from “For All Mankind.” The space drama series, which hails from “Outlander” showrunner Ron Moore, is set in an alternative timeline where the space race never ended.
