Margaret Qualley will essay Amanda Knox in an upcoming Hulu limited series. Knox, an American author and journalist from Seattle, was incarcerated for four years in Italy at the age of 20. She was wrongfully convicted for the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher, a fellow exchange student with whom she roomed while studying in Perugia.

Knox and her then boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, were acquitted in 2015 by Italy’s highest court.

According to an official description, the as-yet untitled series is “based on the true story of how Knox was wrongfully convicted for the murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher and her 16-year odyssey to set herself free”, Variety reported.

Qualley had previously played a real-life character in a limited series in Maid, based on the memoir of author Stephanie Land.
