Sofia Coppola creates a serial adaptation of Edith Wharton’s book “La coutume du pays” for Apple (via Variety).
The custom of the country
Based on novel published in 1913, it tells the story of the Midwestern girl Undine Spragg and her attempt to get into New York society. Ms. Coppola, who already has a relationship with Apple, will write and direct the series.
