Keira Knightley could be making a big step into television for the first time in a while.

The British actress has signed on to star in a series adaptation of Suzanne Rindell’s novel “The Other Typist,” which is now in development at Hulu. “The L Word” creator Ilene Chaiken is set to pen the pilot, as well as serving as showrunner and producer.

Searchlight Television and 20th Century Fox Television, where Chaiken is under a multi-year overall deal, are producing the series for Hulu. According to sources, Knightley was the one who first brought the project to Searchlight’s attention and was previously developing it as a feature.

The series will center around Rose, a prim, unworldly police department typist who gets drawn into the shady world of her glamorous new co-worker Odalie (Knightley). However, when the ultimate crime is committed, it’s uncertain which of the two women was the more treacherous. Set in New York City at the height of the Prohibition era, “The Other Typist” is described as a “psycho-sexual suspense thriller” that turns on themes of identity, class, obsession and misplaced desire.

The project marks an expansion of Chaiken’s relationship with Hulu, as she already serves as an executive producer on arguably the streamer’s biggest show in “The Handmaid’s Tale.” She is also currently an EP on “The L Word: Generation Q” reboot.

Original author Rindell will serve as a producer on the project alongside Chaiken, Knightley, and Oly Obst for 3 Arts Entertainment.

Knightley most recently starred in the 20th Century Fox pic “Misbehaviour,” which fictionalized the events of the 1970 Miss World competition. Her other recent credits include playing the famous French author in “Colette,” and Joan Clarke in “The Imitation Game” opposite Benedict Cumberbatch. This would mark her first series since 2011’s “Neverland” and before that the “Doctor Zhivago” ITV adaptation from 2002.

She is repped United Agents, CAA, Narrative and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern.

Keira Knightley said her new film “Misbehaviour”, the true story of how the Women’s Liberation Movement disrupted the 1970 Miss World competition, felt relevant at a time when people were still fighting for equal treatment.

Knightley, 34, plays a member of the Women’s Liberation Movement, which storms the stage of the London theater where the beauty pageant was being held. That year Miss Grenada won, the first time a black competitor had taken the crown.

The themes of feminism and racism appealed to the actress, she said, as they had ongoing resonance in a world where equality still felt a long way off.

“What I loved about this film was that conversation because it felt so very relevant to what we’re still talking about today,” Knightley told Reuters in an interview.

Back in 1970, Miss World was the most-watched TV show on the planet with more than 100 million viewers, meaning the protest created quite a stir. Misbehaviour opens in British cinemas on March 13, starring Greg Kinnear as pageant host Bob Hope, the comedian, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Miss Grenada.

Knightley is even more conscious of women’s rights and related issues like the #MeToo movement which calls out sexual misconduct across the entertainment, politics and business industries, because she is raising two young daughters.

“With social media…I do completely worry about that with my kids and I worry about the kind of images that they’re going to be bombarded by,” she said.

But Knightly believes progress has been made and the film pays tribute to the women who helped achieve that.

“I think you have to honor and mark the women that created that great progress before us,” she said.
