Screenwriter Maura Milan posted on her LinkedIn profile that she has been working on the Disney+ series National Treasure since May. Her name is also currently attached to recent casting grids for the project showing that this news seems to be true.
The series explores the timely issues of identity, community, historical authorship, and patriotism, told from the point of view of Jess Morales, a twenty-year-old dreamer who, with her diverse group of friends, sets off on the adventure of a lifetime to uncover her mysterious family history and recover lost treasure.
Milan is best known for hit books Ignite the Stars and Eclipse the Skies. She also wrote and directed the the short films Intersect, Maker’s Mark, and her feature Koreatown.
We look forward to seeing what she brings to this new project.
