Scott Frank and powerhouse female cast of their new Netflix limited series The Queen’s Gambit join Jodie Foster for an in-depth conversation about the making of the show. Based on the Walter Trevis novel about a Cold War-era chess prodigy, it’s a coming-of-age story like no other—a complex portrait that follows a young girl from a Kentucky orphanage into the upper echelons of competitive chess as she discovers her preternatural talent for the game—along with the demons that haunt her pursuit of a new life. Don’t miss this candid conversation about capturing the beauty and suspense of chess on film, telling an unconventional story of addiction, and creating a complex female character at work in a male-dominated game.
