Reading Time: < 1 minute

From Deadline.com

HBO Max has unveiled the first footage for its upcoming Julia Child drama series Julia, starring Sarah Lancashire as The French Chef creator and host herself.

Set to debut March 31, Julia is inspired by Child’s extraordinary life and her long-running television series, The French Chef, which pioneered the popular cooking-show genre.

Through Julia and her singular can-do spirit, the series explores an evolving time in American history: the emergence of public television as a new social institution, feminism and the women’s movement, the nature of celebrity and America’s cultural growth.

At its heart, the series is a portrait of a loving marriage with an evolving and complicated power dynamic.
