Hailee Steinfeld parties and pens poetry in first trailer for Dickinson series

Dickinson is the latest project to tackle the poet's story, and the first to examine her younger years.

The series co-stars Jane Krakowski, Toby Huss, Anna Baryshnikov and Ella Hunt, with David Gordon Green ("Halloween") directing the first episode.

The trailer features I Like Tuh by Carnage and dub-stepping youths, so this is definitely not your English teacher's Emily Dickinson.

Emily Dickinson was born in 1830 to a prominent family however, historians think she lived a life of solititude.

And if Monday's one-minute teaser trailer is any indication, the show wants to be a rager, with wild nights set in the 1800s and a period cast boasting a slew of antic-ready youngsters.

Matriarch: The trailer begins with Steinfeld's mother, played by Krakowski, saying: "She's wild". Apple described that series adding, "What happens when the people you trust to tell the truth prove themselves to be dishonest?"

Created by Alena Smith, the series audaciously explores the constraints of society, gender, and family from the perspective of rebellious young poet Emily Dickinson. Oscar-nominated actress, Hailee Steinfeld, steps into the leading role as the infamous poet who defies societal expectations. Smith was previously a writer and co-producer on Showtime's The Affair, and was also a writer on the acclaimed HBO series The Newsroom.

Apple says the series will debut this fall on Apple TV+, along with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon's drama "The Morning Show" and Ronald Moore's "For All Mankind" - though the company has yet to set a launch date or price for the streaming service.
