Facebook has commissioned a new show for its Watch video streaming platform.

The as-yet-untilted dramatic comedy stars Elizabeth Olsen, best known for her role in 'Avengers: Infinity War'. Olsen plays a young widow who, while dealing with the loss of her spouse, starts reconnectng with characters from her past.

The series will comprise 10 half-hour episodes, and is written by Kit Steinkellner, who also penned 'Z: The Beginning of Everything'.

Lizzy Weiss ('Switched at Birth') will be the showrunner.

Facebook is reportedly investing up to $1 billion in original video content this year. That's certainly not small fries, but it's dwarfed by Netflix's $8 billion original content splurge in 2018.

Facebook Watch isn't yet available in the UK.
