The Custom of the Country, which was accepted as one of the classics of American Literature and published for the first time in 1913, focuses on the interesting story of the character named Undine Spragg, which comes from the middle west of America and tries to rise in New York society. Undine, who took the cover of the socialite by marrying the not-so-rich son of a respected New York family, proves how certain he is in this regard with his actions to find a better wife and realize his plans to rise in society.
In 2014, Sony Pictures Television had an attempt to transfer this book to television with Scarlett Johansson, but the project was not able to reach any results. Explaining that her favorite anti-hero in the literary world is Undine Spragg, Sofia Coppola also expressed her excitement as she will take this character into the series world. Although the publication date and the cast of this series, which Sofia Coppola will write and direct, remains uncertain, it seems likely that we will see names from the previous works of the director.
