Jessica Chastain To Play Tammy Wynette In New Miniseries

Jessica Chastain will play the role of country legend Tammy Wynette in the upcoming limited television series George & Tammy.

The TV series is based on the book “The Three of Us: Growing Up with Tammy and George”, which tells the story of the music couple Wynette and George Jones, who were married for six years between 1969 and 1975.

The series is executive produced by Abe Sylvia, Andrew Lazar, Josh Brolin and Chastain.

The series will premiere on Spectrum Originals for nine months exclusively for its subscribers.

Later it will be streamed on ViacomCBS Entertainment and Paramount Network.

Speaking about the project, Sylvia said, “I am humbled to bring this incredible story to life with the breadth it deserves and that the Charter platforms allow.” “Tammy Wynette is an American icon, and I can think of no one better to illuminate the woman behind the legend than Jessica Chastain,” he added.
