Mila Kunis producing 70s feminist drama 'Meridian Hills'

Mila Kunis has been turning heads on screen for years, but her latest project sees the actress taking on a role behind the scenes.

The CW network has picked up Kunis' production "Meridian Hills," a 1970s drama revolving around the women's liberation movement. The official pitch for the series states "Set in a boozy Midwest country club circa 1972, when the push for the Equal Rights Amendment was just beginning, a young, newly married woman joins the Junior League, discovering an eclectic group of other young women who become unlikely allies in her quest to change the system."

Now, the bad news: Esquire's "Sexiest Woman Alive" likely won't step in front of the camera for the series. Personally, I was hoping for a cameo appearance from her "That '70s Show" character Jackie Burkhart, although perhaps there's still hope that Red and the gang could pop in. Maybe not.

The pilot is written by relative unknown Sydney Sidner, and will see Kunis instead handle executive producer duties in tandem with "Party of Five" co-creator Chris Keyser, Eric Tannenbaum, and Kim Tannenbaum. Kunis has parlayed her success on the small screen into several successful film endeavors, drawing praise for her turns in “Black Swan” and most recently in the summer comedy “Ted.” Will her producing efforts find similar success?
