Taking their inspiration from the film by David Maysles, Albert Maysles, Ellen Hovde, Muffie Meyer and Susan Froemke, creators Doug Wright (I Am My Own Wife), Scott Frankel and Michael Korie give the audience an up close and personal look at Edith Bouvier Beale and "Little" Edie, the eccentric aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis as they “revisit and come to terms with their past,” according to press materials.
