“Mob Queens”: Ruth Wilson in Lena Dunham’s HBO Limited Series


Ruth Wilson turns into a mafia wife: the Case Vet to star in HBO limited series based on Stitcher podcast Queens of the crowd, produced by Lena Dunham (Girls), our sister site Variety reports.

The currently developing project – co-written and directed by Dunham – follows real-life figure Anna Genovese (Wilson), who was the second wife of infamous crime boss Vito Genovese. As well as being a staple of the village drag bar scene in the 1930s, Anna Genovese is also known for breaking the Cosa Nostra law when she opened up about her husband’s illegal dealings during divorce hearings.

Wilson – whose other TV credits include Its dark materials and Lutheran – will also serve as executive producer alongside Dunham and co-writer Dennis Lehane (The foreigner, Mr. Mercedes).
