(Deadline.com)

NINTH STREET WOMEN (Amazon, New!) - Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino are looking to bring Mary Gabriel's novel to the small screen at the streaming service. The project is "set amid the most turbulent social and political period of modern times and chronicles five women - Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell and Helen Frankenthaler - who dared to enter the male-dominated world of 20th century abstract painting as artists (and not muses)." Gabriel will also serve as a consulting producer on the potential series. (THR.com)
P-VALLEY (Starz) - Isaiah Washington will recur on the upcoming strip club drama as Mayor Tydell Ruffin: "The newly elected mayor of Chucalissa City is a true man of the people. Born onto hard-scrabble streets, Ruffin is a relatable and crass no-f***s-given bawse. He's determined to make good on his campaign promise of a Chucalissa renaissance by any means necessary."

"This is it for me in terms of Westeros," he told the publication. "It's been a beautifully cathartic thing re-watching the series recently, it's been ten years of my life." Cogman signed an overall deal with Amazon last year. (Variety.com)
WU-TANG: AN AMERICAN SAGA (Hulu) - Ebony Obsidian is the latest set to recur on the docudrama as Nia, "Divine's girlfriend who turned a blind eye to his drug dealing. But his recent encounters may be the thing that pushes her and their relationship past the breaking point." (Deadline.com)
