Elisabeth Moss Leads Women Rights Drama CALL JANE

As a producer on the 10-episode series, she returned to the podium for an Outstanding Drama award shared with a dozen other producers and executives. Having won a best actress award at the Primetime Emmys on September 17, Elisabeth Moss is to become the title character in 1960s women's rights biopic Call Jane.

Robbie Brenner is producing the indie along with Jeff Kwatinetz and Kevin McKeon of The Firm.

Set in 1960s Chicago, Call Jane focuses on the true story of an underground network of suburban women who secretly provide safe abortions for women in need pre-Roe v. Wade. " Moss plays a woman who turns to the group after an unexpected pregnancy".

"I blacked out. I really did". "The world moves pretty quick and it's a freaky new landscape, and I think we're still figuring it out in many ways".
