Elisabeth Moss to Play Former Congressman Katie Hill in Blumhouse TV Project
Elisabeth Moss has found her next role and is sure to be a thrill. The star of “The Handmaid’s Tale” will play the role of former Congressman Katie Hill in the TV adaptation of the recently published book “She Will Rise: Becoming a Warrior in the Battle for True Equality”. Blumhouse TV prioritized the book published in August and accelerated the work.
In the book, Hill describes how she lived as a young woman with no previous political experience, whose charm and common sense conquered the people of her neighborhood and pushed her into the halls of power in Washington. His arrogant self-esteem concealed a cycle of domestic abuse in which he was trapped at home while winning powerful allies and infuriating his enemies.

The power and work of women to voice their voice are incredibly inspiring and their experience couldn’t be more important to the current environment. As always, Jason and the Blumhouse team are amazing partners.
Lindsey and I are excited to do something powerful with them and Michael. “
Hill will be on the project as executive producer. Best known for writing the 2005 production of Charlize Theron, “North Country,” Michael Seitzman will write the script. Katei Hill said in a statement; “I will try to take back my story from those who exploit and distort it. I wanted to shed light on the stories of women whose resilience and courage gave me strength when I needed it most and hopefully inspire others. To have this great platform to tell this story, the talented team and lead role in Blumhouse and Michael. Working with the amazing Elisabeth Moss is more than I could ever imagine.
