Marilyn Monroe: TV series targets the last few months of the sex symbol

There are still rumors about Marilyn Monroe's death (1926-1962, "Some like it hot"). A new TV series now wants to take a close look at their last months of life. As the industry service "Hollywood Reporter" reports, the production companies "101 Studios" and "Seven Seas" are preparing the project, there is no customer yet. It is based on the revelation book "The Final Years of Marilyn Monroe" by Keith Badman. For the first time, Monroe's brand management company, the Authentic Brands Group, has approved a film project about the icon's end of life.

The makers promise "jewels of never-before-released details"

Author Keith Badman disclosed in his book "Jewels of Never Before Published Details," the 101 Studios said. The sex symbol died in 1962 at the age of 36, an overdose of the barbiturate nembutal in combination with the sleeping aid chloral hydrate in the blood. The series is said to immerse in the time before, in the sights of the film: warring mafia gangs, the Kennedy dynasty, the Hollywood elite and Peter Lawford (1923-1984). The British actor and ex-brother-in-law of John F. Kennedy is said to have been the last person to speak to Monroe before her death.

The "101 Studios" also produced the Western TV series "Yellowstone" with Kevin Costner (65). The author of the new Monroe series is former doctor Dan Senfton ("The Good Karma Hospital"), co-founder of the British indie company "Seven Sea Films".
