With the hit series she created - UNDERGROUND - currently in Limbo after WGN America's parent company Tribune Media's sale to Sinclair Broadcast, Misha Green's new spec script  MOTHER has been picked up by Netflix after what is said to have been an intense bidding war for the project, which is described as a female-led action movie with franchise potential that's being compared to classics like "The Professional" and "La Femme Nikita."

Green has also teamed up with Jordan Peele (of GET OUT fame). She is writing an adaption of LOVECRAFT COUNTY for HBO. She will also be show runner for this new television show.

I know. I'm being greedy. 
It's Ava and Shonda's fault.
