The Affair alum and HBO His Dark Materials star will play Anna Genovese, the "most widely known as the second wife of infamous crime boss Vito Genovese and a fixture in the Village’s drag bar scene in the 1930s who later broke Cosa Nostra law when she spilled the illegal dealings of her husband in divorce hearings," reports Variety. Girls creator Dunham and Gone, Baby, Gone author Lehane will co-write the limited series, with Dunham directing. Mob Queens marks Wilson's latest period drama. In 2018, she starred as her grandmother Alison Wilson in BBC limited series Mrs Wilson.
