Elisabeth Moss blacked out on Emmys stage

The actress will play a married Chicago woman who becomes pregnant in Call Jane, based on the true story of a 1960s movement called the Jane Collective, according to The Hollywood Reporter. " Moss plays a woman who turns to the group after an unexpected pregnancy".

Robbie Brenner is producing the indie along with Jeff Kwatinetz and Kevin McKeon of The Firm.

"People keep asking me, 'Why do you pick these strong, feminist roles?' and it's a question that I'm grappling with".
