3 New Jewish Shows Are In the Works + A New Fiddler?

Updated: Aug 20

A number of new Jewish movies (whether Jewish-themed or about Jews) and miniseries are in the works and I could not be more excited to see them.

  1. Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman herself, will be playing Hedy Lamarr in an eight episode miniseries. Besides being a famous Hollywood actress, Lamarr was an incredible inventor, including creating what is the basis for WIFI technology. Gadot can next be seen, however in Wonder Woman 1984, whose release date was pushed back to August 14. https://www.timesofisrael.com/tv-series-starring-gal-gadot-as-hedy-lamarr-to-be-broadcast-by-apple

  2. Seth Rogen will be starring in An American Pickle which is due to be released by HBO Max in August. He plays a Jewish immigrant in 1920s New York City who gets stuck in a pickle vat for a century only to reemerge today. https://forward.com/fast-forward/445055/the-first-image-of-seth-rogen-as-a-jewish-pickle-maker-is-extremely/

  3. Perhaps even more far-fetched than the pickle story is that a remake is going to be made of none other than Fiddler on the Roof. At least the director is Thomas Kail, who directed Lin Manuel Miranda's shows In The Heights and Hamilton (as well as the upcoming movie version of Hamilton). Still, many see this as sacrilege. https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/culture/plan-for-fiddler-on-the-roof-movie-remake-ignites-passions-629831

  4. Hamilton himself, the founding father without a father, may likely have been a Jew (assuming his mother converted when marrying her previous husband, a Danish Jew). At the least we know that he attended Jewish school, spoke Hebrew and defended Jewish causes and religious liberty. Here are 13 Jewish facts about the show (though I'm not sure Thomas Kail is actually Jewish) to know before the movie comes out on July 3. https://www.kveller.com/13-jewish-facts-about-hamilton-that-will-make-you-smile/
