-Margaret Atwood (who is going to be a consulting producer) is excited for the series:
"'The Handmaid's Tale' is more relevant now than when it was written," said Atwood. "I am sure the series will be watched with great interest. I have read the first two scripts and they are excellent; I can hardly wait to see the finished episodes."
