NETFLIX ORDERS FEMALE-DRIVEN DRAMEDY SERIES "MAID," INSPIRED BY NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLER

From Writer/Showrunner Molly Smith Metzler, John Wells Productions, LuckyChap Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television

Logline: Inspired by the powerful New York Times best-selling memoir Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother's Will to Survive by Stephanie Land, Maid will chronicle a single mother who turns to housekeeping to - barely - make ends meet as she battles against poverty, homelessness, and bureaucracy. Told primarily through her point of view, Maid will be a beautiful, alive, gritty, and inspiring exploration of poverty in America.

Writer/Showrunner: Molly Smith Metzler (Shameless, Orange is the New Black), who will also executive produce.

Executive Producers: John Wells and Erin Jontow with John Wells Productions; Margot Robbie, Tom Ackerley and Brett Hedblom with LuckyChap Entertainment; Stephanie Land.

LuckyChap Entertainment quote: "Stephanie Land's book is a powerful and necessary read, with incredible insight into the struggles people face whilst just trying to get by. We are thrilled to partner with John Wells and his amazing team, as well as WBTV and Netflix, to help this story reach as wide of an audience as possible."

John Wells quote: "Stephanie tells the searing and remarkably human story of a young woman battling to find a secure future for herself and her infant daughter, Mia, in the face of overwhelming odds and governmental assistance programs of impossible complexity. We're delighted to be able to partner with LuckyChap, Warner Bros, and the extraordinarily talented Molly Metzler to tell this moving story."

Netflix quote: "Maid is a poignant portrait that chronicles Stephanie Land's strife and victories, and has the power to connect with our members around the world as they identify with her struggles and root for her success. We're excited to share the stories inspired by Stephanie's book and bring them to life along with WBTV, John Wells Productions and LuckyChap Entertainment." Channing Dungey, Vice President, Original Series, Netflix.

Studio: John Wells Productions, LuckyChap Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television
