Amy Jenkins is the creator and showrunner of the BBC series “This Life” and writer on Netflix’s “The Crown,” and is set to adapt Allison’s “Sisi” Novels (The Accidental Empress & Sisi: Empress On Her Own) into a TV series.
The TV series is being developed by Picture Perfect Federation and will shed light on one of Europe’s most powerful royal families spanning from 1853 up until World War 1.
“Sisi was an extraordinary young empress,” Jenkins said. “Charismatic and free-thinking, she was a royal rebel who set the Hapsburg court on fire in a surprisingly modern way.” Jenkins added that she was “looking forward to bringing a very feminine perspective to her fascinating struggle for self-determination.”
