Cate Blanchett to direct TV series 'Stateless'

Canberra:Actress Cate Blanchett is set to develop and direct an Australian TV series, “Stateless”, which will center on “the tragic and true story of Cornelia Rau which made headlines in 2004”.

Rau, a German citizen and permanent resident of Australia, escaped a frightening cult only to be trapped in a bizarre labyrinth of psychiatric and legal systems, landing her in the notorious Baxter Immigration Detention Centre, reports 

“'Stateless' will be Cate Blanchett's first venture into high-end TV,” shared Screen Australia, the federal Australian funding agency that announced that it will be providing development finance. Matchbox Pictures is the production company. 

It is unclear if Blanchett intends to also appear as an actress in “Stateless”. 

The “Cinderella” actress last year announced that she is also planning to direct “The Dinner”.
