The forthcoming limited series was written and created by Jess Kimball Leslie, a journalist who also wrote the book, I Love My Computer Because My Friends Live In It.

Based on real life events, Kings of America tells the story of three women all of whom have unique ties to Walmart. One is a Walmart heiress, the other an executive. The third is a preacher and long time sales associate at the company who decides to go head to head with the big box store in the biggest class action lawsuit in U.S. history.

For her part, Adams is set to star in the forthcoming limited series. Though it’s been confirmed that the Academy Award nominee will, indeed, assume one of the lead roles, details with regards to whom exactly she’ll play remain unknown.

As for McKay, he’ll serve as an executive producer on the series, in addition to helming the first episode. Meanwhile, Diana Son will executive produce, in addition to serving as showrunner on the limited series.

Amy Adams and Adam McKay’s involvement with Kings of America will mark the third time the two have teamed up together for a project.

Most recently, the pair worked together on the 2018 political biopic, Vice, which scooped up one win and seven nominations at the 2019 Oscars.

Prior to that, they also worked together on the 2006 Will Ferrell comedy, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.

Currently, there’s no word on when we can expect Kings of America starring Amy Adams to debut via Netflix.
