Starz has picked up Watergate anthology series Gaslit starring Julia Roberts and Sean Penn. Gaslit will follow the untold story of Martha Mitchell, a celebrity Arkansan socialite who was married to Attorney General John Mitchell.

Roberts will portray Martha Mitchell, the first person to publicly sound the alarm on President Richard Nixon’s involvement in Watergate. Penn will star as John Mitchell, who will be forced to choose between Martha and the president.

Gaslit is based on Slate podcast Slow Burn, and production will begin later this spring.
