The miniseries, based on the book from 1941 by James M. Cain, tells the story of Mildred Pierce Beragon, a single mother of two daughters in the Great Depression trying to make ends meet, financially and emotionally. It will be directed by Todd Haynes, also a co-writer, who directed I’m Not There and Far from Heaven.

A feature film version of the book was produced in 1945 and starred Joan Crawford, who won an Oscar for best actress for her role as the main character.
