In 2015, Anderson wrote the documentary Packed in a Trunk: The Lost Art of Edith Lake Wilkinson about her great aunt, Edith Lake Wilkinson, a lesbian and painter who was institutionalized in the 1920s and spent the rest of her life in an asylum for the mentally ill.

As of 2016, Anderson was working on a project with HBO, partnering again with Frances McDormand, to do a miniseries. In 2018, Anderson wrote the Glenn Close-starring The Wife.
