Hidden Figures

The lives of mathematicians Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson and Katherine Johnson were so beautifully displayed in the 2016 hit film Hidden Figures that it may just become the subject of a new TV series.

Reportedly, executive producers of the film—Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping—are in the “early stages of development” on a scripted drama with National Geographic (Nat Geo).

Check out the official trailer for the upcoming space drama “Hidden Figures” starring Janelle Monáe, Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer.  The film stars the trio as Mathematicians Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson and Katherine Johnson, who served as the brains behind America’s race against Russia to put a man in space.
