Emmy-winning The Handmaid's Tale writer Eric Tuchman, The Morning Show's Mimi Leder and Streisand are teaming with MGM/UA Television on Lioness, a TV adaptation of Francine Klagsbrun's book Lioness: Golda Meir and the Nation of Israel. "The book chronicles the life and career of Meir, one of the most influential figures in the history of Israel and a prominent figure in world history," per Deadline. "It spans her birth in Kiev to her American upbringing in Milwaukee, her role in the formation of Israel and her rise to become the new nation’s first and only female prime minister. This remarkable, and often controversial, leader was (and still is) known as the beloved Mother of Israel." Haas is coming off of becoming the first Israeli actor to receive a Golden Globe and a Primetime Emmy nominations for her starring role in Netflix's Unorthodox. According to Deadline, "this would mark the first scripted TV series project for two-time Oscar winner and five-time Emmy winner Streisand. In TV, she executive produced the 2001 docuseries The Living Century."
