UPDATED with full trailer: Single mother Alex describes a life of luxury that’s far from the reality of her own in the trailer for Netflix’s Maid.
“It’s a story about a woman. She lives in a big beautiful house – the kind of house that’s on the cover of magazines. She has a personal trainer and a financial adviser,” Margaret Qualley’s Alex imagines.
Inspired by Stephanie Land’s best-selling memoir Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay and a Mother’s Will to Survive, Maid centers on Alex, who turns to housekeeping to make ends meet as she battles against poverty, homelessness and bureaucracy. In the trailer, Alex’s reality consists of tiresome days polishing mansions from top-to-bottom, relying on assistance programs like S.N.A.P. to provide for her family and struggles just to survive.
Maid also features Andie MacDowell, Billy Burke, Nick Robinson, Anika Noni Rose and Tracy Vilar. The series hails from writer Molly Smith Metzler, John Wells Productions, Margot Robbie’s LuckyChap Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television.
Metzler executive produces and will serves as showrunner. Wells and Erin Jontow executive produce with John Wells Prods., along with Robbie, Tom Ackerley and Brett Hedblom via LuckyChap Entertainment, and Land. John Wells Productions, LuckyChap Entertainment and Warner Bros. TV co-produce the drama series.
