But the truth is she's in way over her head and if the newspaper fails, she'll never win her father's approval - something she desperately wants." (Deadline.com)
UNTITLED ORPHAN PROJECT (Hulu) - Imogen Reid will star opposite Ellen Pompeo in the limited series, which is "inspired by the true story of a Midwestern couple who adopts a young girl with a rare form of dwarfism (Reid)." (Deadline.com)
