Tracey and the cast of the upcoming FX limited series Mrs. America appeared at the 2020 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour. They spoke about the show and the characters they play. Tracey portrays feminist writer and activist Betty Friedan. Mrs. America will premiere on Hulu, April 15, 2020.

Mrs. America tells the true story of the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, and the unexpected backlash led by a conservative woman named Phyllis Schlafly, played by Blanchett. Through the eyes of the women of that era — both Schlafly and second-wave feminists Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Shirley Chisholm, Bella Abzug and Jill Ruckelshaus — the series explores how one of the toughest battlegrounds in the culture wars of the ’70s helped give rise to the Moral Majority and forever shifted our political landscape.
