Deadline and Variety reported yesterday (April 5) that National Geographic Channel will adapt “Hidden Figures” into a scripted television series. The series takes inspiration from the Screen Actors Guild Award-winning historical drama, which drew from Margot Lee Shetterly’s best-selling book about the Black scientists who enabled NASA’s first human spaceflight missions.
