The treatment for the show was co-written by none other than Hepburn’s son, Luca Dotti, as well as Italian journalist and writer Luigi Spinola. Hepburn was married to Dotti’s father, Italian psychiatrist Andrea Dotti, whom Hepburn married in 1970 before divorcing a decade later.
Fremantle notes that the writing duo did some intense research for the show and promise it will go deeper on the actress’ “formative years” than anything else that’s explored Hepburn’s life. Unfortunately, no further details about the show have been made available.

“Luca and Luigi explored the singularity of Audrey’s real self undiscovered along the way that ‘it all matched,’ the muse, the mother and the later humanitarian all closely relate to a girl that never stopped to be amazed by the gift of life,” the release reads. “In developing the new series Luca will contribute an unprecedented historical research of his mother’s formative years.”
Fremantle COO andrea Scrosati added: “For Audrey our goal is once again to produce a show that is born locally to deliver globally, the creative team assembled by Wildside and the IP are perfectly positioned to make this happen.”
