Author Naomi Alderman is adapting her 2019 feminist sci-fi book with the help of an all-female writers' room. In The Power, "all teenage girls in the world develop the power to electrocute people at will. It’s hereditary, it’s inbuilt, and it can’t be taken away from them," per Deadline. Mann will play "a politician on the rise and until now, not only a woman in a man’s world, but one with a questionable taste in jackets according to online trolls. Vital, charming and incredibly smart, Margot comes to see that power resides with strength rather than authority."
