The third annual Tribeca TV Festival is about to have a wild night. The premiere of Apple TV+’s fall comedy series Dickinson starring Hailee Steinfeld will headline the New York fest, which takes place September 12-15.
Watch the teaser trailer below.
The half-hour series will screen ahead of its fall TV premiere and will be followed by a discussion with Oscar-nominated actress Steinfeld, who plays the titular writer; Jane Krakowski; and series creator, showrunner and executive producer Alena Smith (The Affair, The Newsroom). Toby Huss, Anna Baryshnikov, Ella Hunt and Adrian Blake Enscoe also star.
Dickinson isn’t a normal historical series with bonnets, corsets and proper ladies. The comedy subverts all of that as it audaciously explores the constraints of society, gender and family from the perspective of the rebellious young poet, Emily Dickinson. Set in the 19th century, Dickinson is a coming-of-age story that finds the author to be an unexpected hero for our millennial era.
Now in its third year, the Tribeca TV Festival is an extension of the Tribeca Film Festival and puts shine on episodic storytelling — no matter what format. The fest included world premieres of hotly anticipated series inlcuding Chernobyl, The Hot Zone, The Handmaid’s Tale, Genius and The Night Of.
