Fans of 2016 drama Hidden Figures can look forward to bringing that special brand of #BlackGirlMagic to the small screen, as the Oscar-nominated true story will soon be adapted for television, according to Variety.

National Geographic is reportedly developing the project alongside the original film’s executive producers, which includes Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping of Chernin Entertainment. There is no word yet if movie stars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Kevin Costner and Kirsten Dunst will be a part of the series.

Hidden Figures will only be the second scripted series for Nat Geo, with the network debuting scripted drama, Genius, starring Geoffrey Rush as Albert Einstein last year, to be followed up with a second installment starring Antonio Banderas as Pablo Picasso later this year.
