Nat Geo is Developing a TV Series based on Margot Lee Shetterly’s Hidden Figures

Hidden FiguresMargot Lee Shetterly’s runaway New York Times bestseller and the inspiration for the Academy Award nominated film—is being developed by the original producers into a series for Nat Geo, National Geographic’s cable channel.

Shetterly’s book recounts the true story of the black women mathematicians at NASA who helped achieve some of America’s greatest achievements in space, including winning the space race. In talks, she celebrates these unsung heroes and highlights issues of race, gender, science and innovation against the backdrop of WWII and the Civil Rights era.
