Margaret Qualley has been roped in for Netflix's dramedy series Maid. The series will be based on Stephanie Land’s “Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive.” It will chronicle a single mother who turns to housekeeping to barely make ends meet as she battles against poverty, homelessness, and bureaucracy.

NBC Universal on Tuesday announced that its Joe Exotic drama starring Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon has been formally ordered to series and will air as a cross-platform venture on NBC, USA Network and streamer Peacock. The limited series, which has been without a network since it was put in development at studio UCP in November, is the first taste of a strategy to come from Frances Berwick.
