Disgraced former Democrat Congresswoman Katie Hill will be receiving her own television biopic to be produced and aired by Blumhouse television.
The star of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Elizabeth Moss will star in the lead role as Hill.
As Yahoo News reports:
Elisabeth Moss is attached to play former congresswoman Katie Hill in an adaptation of Hill’s memoir “She Will Rise” from Blumhouse Television, the company announced on Tuesday.
The “Handmaid’s Tale” star will also produce the feature adaptation via her Love & Squalor Pictures banner, with Michael Seitzman attached to write.
Hill, a former U.S. representative for California, resigned from Congress last October after facing accusations of inappropriate relationships with members of her staff. She was also the victim of a revenge porn incident she said was instigated by her estranged husband. Her memoir, “She Will Rise: Becoming a Warrior in the Battle for True Equality,” was published in August.
Per Blumhouse, the film will recount her experience as a young woman with no prior political experience who rockets to political success while “privately concealing a cycle of domestic abuse she was trapped in at home, infamously culminating in the release of intimate photos and the revelation of her own admitted personal mistakes that would eventually result in her stunning fall from grace.”
Hill resigned from Congress in October of 2019 after a series of sordid allegations were revealed, including the fact that she was having an extra marital affair with her male legislative director in addition to also being involved in a sexual ‘throuple’ with her husband and a female campaign staffer.
