Kathryn Hahn and Joan Rivers

Actor Kathryn Hahn has been roped in to play the late comedy icon Joan Rivers in Showtime's upcoming limited series The Comeback Girl.

Cosmo Carlson is set to write the series, with Greg Berlanti directing the series. The writer and the director will also executive produce alongside Hahn.

The biographical limited series is set in the aftermath of the cancellation of Rivers' The Late Show, which coincided with her husband and show's producer Edgar Rosenberg's death by suicide.

The official logline reads: "Trailblazer. Adored. Cruel. Diva. Joan Rivers had a life like no other. At age 54, she was a superstar comedienne... and then it all fell apart. The Comeback Girl is the awe-inspiring untold story of how Joan Rivers persevered through near suicide and professional abyss to rebuild herself and her career to become a global icon."

The Comeback Girl is produced by Warner Bros Television, Atlas Entertainment and Berlanti Productions.

Hahn was recently nominated for Emmy for her role as Agatha Harkness in the Disney+ series WandaVision. The actor will soon be seen in Apple TV's The Shrink Next Door. She recently completed filming on Rian Johnson's Knives Out 2.
