Uzo Aduba is slated to play politician Shirley Chisholm FX’s upcoming limited series, Mrs. America, which will star Oscar winner Cate Blanchett. Spanning nine episodes, the series is slated for a 2020 premiere on FX.
Mrs. America tells the story of the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), and the unexpected backlash led by a conservative woman named Phyllis Schlafly, played by Blanchett. Through the eyes of the women of that era – both Schlafly and second wave feminists Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Shirley Chisholm, Bella Abzug and Jill Ruckelshaus – the series explores how one of the toughest battlegrounds in the culture wars of the 70s helped give rise to the Moral Majority and forever shifted our political landscape.
Along with Rose Byrne, Sarah Paulson, Margo Martindale, Ari Graynor, John Slattery, James Marsden, Jeanne Tripplehorn,Tracey Ullman, Melanie Lynskey, & Kayli Carter, Aduba is part of the 11 new additions to the drama series.
