Paramount + announces a new original series Miss Fallaci
Paramount+ announces the start of filming for Miss Fallaci, starring Miriam Leone, which will soon debut exclusively on the streaming service.

Miss Fallaci is an 8-episode series produced by Paramount and Minerva Pictures that recounts a very intense and little-explored period in Oriana Fallaci's life, when, in the late 1950s, she began travelling between New York and Hollywood to interview movie stars, before becoming the first war correspondent and one of the most important journalist  and writes, with 20 million copies sold and her books translated into 25 languages.

The series, set between 1956 and 1959 in Milan, New York, Los Angeles, Rome, London and Florence, Oriana Fallaci - played by Miriam Leone - is a young correspondent for L'Europeo, intelligent, brilliant, polemical and intolerant of the dynamics of an all-male editorial staff that can deal with politics while she is relegated to the role of 'film girl'. Thanks to her determination, Oriana manages to obtain a trip to New York, with the promise of interviewing the most coveted and unattainable star: Marilyn Monroe.

Miss Fallaci is a Paramount and Minerva Pictures co-production, produced by Santo Versace and Gianluca Curti, in association with RedString. The series is based on events recounted by Fallaci herself in 'The Seven Sins of Hollywood' and 'Penelope at War', published by Rizzoli.

Written by an international team, led by creator and head writer Viola Rispoli ("CIRCEO", "Il commissario Ricciardi", "Doc nelle tue mani", "Non uccidere") and Thomas Grieves ("Safe Space", "Dracula"), which includes Miriam Leone herself, Laura Grimaldi ("Nero a metà", "Mental"), Alice Urciuolo ("Skam", "Prisma"), and Alessandra Gonnella, author and director of "A cup of coffee with Marilyn", the Nastro d'Argento-winning short film about the young Fallaci trying to interview the impregnable diva, which inspired the series. Edoardo Perazzi, Oriana Fallaci's nephew and heir, is among the project's consultants. Creative Producer Francesca de Michele. Head Director is Luca Ribuoli, who directs the first four episodes, while the others are directed by Giacomo Martelli (episodes 5-7-8) and Alessandra Gonnella (episode 6).
