The Hardline is a drama series inspired by a 50 year old Amal Alamuddin and Zaha Hadid. While architecture is historically a male-dominated field, world renowned Zaha Hadid has set the tone for a new generation of empowered female designers. She was the first woman to win the Pritzker Prize, the Nobel Prize of architecture, she was ranked as one of “The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women” in 2008, and she was appointed a Dame for her impact on our surroundings.

The Hardline series is loosely based on Zaha’s tenacious, commanding character, and the competitive atmosphere that life as an architect entails. Similar to the Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder series, this drama pulls you into Amal Barzani’s life as a 50 year old principal of a hugely successful Chicago based architecture firm. More fierce and more desirable with each passing year, Amal will make you wish you were her.
