Los Angeles (CM): Oscar winner Anne Hathaway is the latest movie star heading to the small screen after signing up to appear in a TV drama titled the ambassador’s wife. The Les Miserables actress has been cast as the lead in the show, which is based on the novel of the same name by Jennifer Steil about a British woman who is kidnapped in Yemen, where her husband serves as the ambassador. The series marks the first time in 15 years Hathaway will be a regular on a TV programme since her short-lived sitcom, Get Real, ended in 2000.
