Lulu Wang (The Farewell) is joining the upcoming Amazon drama series The Expatriates as a writer, director and executive producer. The drama, based on Janice Y.K. Lee's novel, revolves around the lives of a close knit group of expatriates in Hong Kong. Nicole Kidman is executive producing through her and Per Saari's Blossom Films, and writer Alice Bell is also writing and producing on the series.
This announcement probably went to press today because of a tweet Wang posted yesterday:
New partners in crime who got tired of waiting for the official announcement and decided to drop this here because we could not be more excited! (Wine may have been involved, so studio-that shall-not-be-named-yet please don’t sue us.) pic.twitter.com/9NCxcznUDn— Lulu Wang (@thumbelulu) December 12, 2019
