Elisabeth Moss Is Defiant in the Super Bowl Spot for Hulu's THE HANDMAID'S TALE
"My name is Offred and I intend to survive."
Hulu has released an intense Super Bowl spot for their new series The Handmaid's Tale. The series stars Elisabeth Moss, and we get a taste of her determination to survive and defiance against the system in this latest spot.
Even though this looks like it's going to be a great series, it doesn't seem like the Super Bowl audience is the kind of audience that is going to watch this show, but who knows, maybe I'm wrong!
Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized ‘return to traditional values'. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world. In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.
Hulu will release the 10-episode series on Wednesday, April 26. To watch the first trailer for the series, click here.
