Nix, The: Meryl Streep to Team with J.J. Abrams on TV?

Meryl Streep, the most important actress of her generation, may be appearing on the small screen.

The three-time Oscar-winning actress may team with J.J. Abrams for a TV adaptation of novel The Nix, which will be set up at Warner TV.

Streep is  looking to executive produce and star in the project, while Abrams is expected to direct some episodes, per Deadline.

The novel, penned by Nathan Hill and released in August, centers around Samuel Andresen-Anderson, a college professor whose estranged mother reappears decades after abandoning the family, having committed an absurd crime that incites a media frenzy.

Abrams will produce under his Bad Robot banner, which is also behind HBO’s upcoming “Westworld” adaptation. He most recently helmed “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and served as an executive producer on Showtime’s Cameron Crowe dramedy “Roadies,” CBS’ “Person of Interest” and Hulu’s “11.22.63.”
Streep can currently be seen in the titular role in Florence Foster Jenkins, for which she is likely to get yet another Best Actress Oscar nomination.  She will also appear in Disney’s upcoming Mary Poppins Returns.
