It was just announced today that Bryce will produce and star in a new limited series called “The Swans Of Fifth Avenue” for RatPac Entertainment! The Swans of Fifth Avenue is written by Melanie Benjamin and was published in January by Ballantine Bantam Dell. It is already in its fifth printing and has made the New York Times best seller list.
“I am someone who has carried an endless fascination for The Swans with me since I was a teen so naturally I devoured The Swans Of Fifth Avenue overnight,” Howard said. “Melanie has brought this iconic time to life: the rarefied, scandalous, extravagant high-society world and the dazzling and mysterious women at the center of it all. This story is as full of pathos as it is entertaining. I am exhilarated to have the opportunity to bring Melanie’s book to life along with Brett, John, and the whole team at RatPac. We have long hoped to partner on a project, but I never dreamt that it could be this much of a personal wish fulfillment!”
“Bryce Dallas Howard tipped us off to this incredible book and we were immediately blown away by Melanie’s salacious characters and stories,” Ratner said. “We are fortunate to be working with such a talented actress such as Bryce.”
