Mila Kunis Developing Feminist Drama for The CW


Mila Kunis


The 'Friends with Benefits' actress will executive produce 'Meridian Hills', which captures the women's liberation movement in 1972.

After a bunch of acting credits in feature films and TV shows, Mila Kunis is ready to take a behind-the-scene role. The Golden Globe-nominated actress is set to executive produce "Meridian Hills", a new drama for The CW.

The story is set in a boozy Midwest country club circa 1972, when the push for the Equal Rights Amendment was just beginning. It centers on a young, newly married woman who joins the Junior League, discovering an eclectic group of other young women who become unlikely allies in her quest to change the system.

The Jackie Burkhart of "That '70s Show" is not expected to take an on-screen role in the project. She will be joined by Chris Keyser, Eric and Kim Tannenbaum as well as Cami Curtis and Susan Curtis in executive producing the show. Sydney Sidner is on board to provide the script.

Kunis recently starred on Seth MacFarlane's comedy film "Ted" and will next be seen playing opposite James Franco in "Oz: The Great and Powerful". The "Black Swan" beauty is also lending her voice to Adult Swim's animated comedy "Robot Chicken".
