Red Arrow Studios Teams Up With Seven Stories And Atalaya Productions

News Image
Red Arrow Studios International has teamed up with Seven Stories and Atalaya Productions to develop Harvey Girls, a fresh, irreverent female-led series based on the historical phenomenon of the Harvey Girls in early 1900s America.

Liz Lake (Riviera, Call the Midwife) will write the screenplay for the project, based on research from the non-fiction book The Harvey Girls: Women who opened the West by Lesley Poling-Kempes.

Harvey Houses was a chain of high-class hotels and restaurants for travellers along the Santa Fe Railroad, engineered by British-born Fred Harvey. The drama will follow the young women who worked and lived full time in these establishments – drawn by the opportunity to escape and earn good pay. Set across the 1920s and 1930s, Harvey Girls will explore the resonant themes of identity, sexuality, sisterhood and female independence as they embark on a voyage into the unknown and seize their chance to live the American Dream.

Seven Stories' Sharon Maguire, Anand Tucker and Colleen Woodcock will executive produce for Seven Stories, alongside Giovanni Orlando for Atalaya Productions, and Carlo Dusi for Red Arrow Studios International.

Carlo Dusi, EVP Commercial Strategy, Scripted at Red Arrow Studios International said: "It's fantastic to be working with Seven Stories, Atalaya, and the hugely talented Liz Lake on Harvey Girls – a show that explores a little-known slice of US history while still managing to feel timely. It’s exactly the sort of bold and ambitious drama we like to support at Red Arrow and we are looking forward to working with this best-in-class talent to create a compelling, globally-appealing series."
