Mary Elizabeth Winstead has signed on to star opposite Ewan McGregor in the upcoming TV series “A Gentleman in Moscow".

A Gentleman in Moscow is a worldwide best-selling novel by Amor Towles released in 2016. This is the perfect book to read—or reread— in 2023, because Count Rostov is such a marvelous role model for resilience under bad circumstances that he can inspire us to be our best selves—always a goal in our life—within the constraints and limitations of life during post pandemic and "higher for longer" interest rates environment.

Per the official logline, the series “follows Count Alexander Rostov (McGregor) who, in the aftermath of the Russian Revolution, finds that his gilded past places him on the wrong side of history. Spared immediate execution, he is banished by a Soviet tribunal to an attic room in the opulent Hotel Metropol, threatened with death if he ever sets foot outside again. As the years pass and some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history unfold outside the hotel’s doors, Rostov’s reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery. As he builds a new life within the walls of the hotel, he discovers the true value of friendship, family and love.”

Winstead will star as Anna Urbanova, described as “a glamorous, independent and self-made film actress, at the height of her fame. She uses her wit and beauty to dazzle Count Alexander Rostov. She’s an enigmatic character who keeps her cards very close to her chest. Reluctant to reveal her true self, Anna plays a role off-screen as well as on. The Count and Anna’s sizzling chemistry is clear from the moment they meet in the Metropol Hotel where he has been banished by a Soviet trial, but will this be true love, or just the latest in a long line of roles Anna is playing?”

This will mark the third onscreen collaboration between Winstead and McGregor, who first worked together when they both starred in Season 3 of “Fargo” at FX. They then worked together on the 2020 DC film “Birds of Prey.” They were reportedly married in 2022 and have one child together.

Having begun production, the TV series hits our screens by 2024, and it will available to watch on Showtime in the U.S. and Paramount Plus at selected countries around the world.
