Don’t Miss It: “Hillary Clinton miniseries coming to NBC”
Hillary Clinton miniseries coming to NBC
Just in time for the 2016 elections. A couple questions:
Will Lane wear pantsuits?
Will the show include Hillary dodging bullets in Bosnia?
Will the word ‘Benghazi’ be allowed to be uttered on the set?
Actress Diane Lane is starring as Hillary Clinton in a new NBC miniseries, the network announced on Saturday, Variety reports:
[NBC Entertainment chief Bob] Greenblatt said the Peacock is working on a miniseries about Hillary Clinton to star Diane Lane; a reboot of “Rosemary’s Baby”; a new version of Stephen King’s “Tommyknockers”; and a historical project with Mark Burnett about the pilgrims’ landing at Plymouth Rock.
The role of Bill Clinton has not yet been cast, nor is there a completed script yet, Greenblatt said. He said the mini would likely air before Hillary Clinton formally declares herself to be a presidential candidate in 2016.
“HIllary” will follow Clinton from the 1998 period of the Monica Lewinsky scandal through the present day. Script, which has not been written, will be penned by Courtney Hunt (“Frozen River”).
