Here we go. NBC is going to bat for Hillary Clinton with a four-hour miniseries called Hillary that is sure to cast her in the best light and warm people to her ‘humanity’ or something. No doubt this is an attempt to help her win in 2016.
This is why we need a strong conservative in bold colors to run in 2016 because anything less will end in a loss like it has in the past:
HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – In addition to the previously announced six-hour miniseries based on Cleopatra, NBC has ordered a four-hour miniseries based on former first lady Hillary Clinton starring Diane Lane, an “updated remake” of Rosemary’s Baby, a new version of Stephen King’s Tommyknockers and another limited series from Mark Burnett tentatively called Plymouth.
Greenblatt noted the deal for the Clinton biopic just closed and casting has yet to begin for an actor to play Bill Clinton. While the former secretary of state is likely to announce her candidacy for president, Greenblatt said the mini will likely air before them — avoiding concerns about offering about equal time to her potential Republican challenger.
“She’s not going to declare her candidacy for two more years so I think it will be the late spring or early summer of ’15 that she will declare,” Greenblatt told reporters. “This could well have aired before that. We have to talk through all that.”
Hilary will be written and directed by Frozen River’s Courtney Hunt and will recount Clinton’s life as a wife, mother, politician and cabinet member from 1998-present. The script will begin with Clinton living in the White House as her husband is serving the second of his two terms as president. It will include her likely run for president. Busted Shark’s Sherryl Clark will executive produce alongside James D. Stern (Looper) and producers Julie Goldstein and Lucas Smith of Endgame Entertainment
