If you just can’t handle the suspense of waiting to see if Hillary Clinton will be running for the top spot in the 2016 US presidential race, then we’ve got some news that will tide you over until then.
NBC has announced that they are making a four-hour miniseries based on Hillary Clinton’s life. The NBC release said that the series would “recount Clinton’s life as a wife, politician and Cabinet member from 1998 to present.”
It continued: “The script will begin with Clinton living in the White House as her husband is serving the second of his two terms as president. In the years following, she would eventually become a United States senator, run for president and, ultimately, serve the country as secretary of state.” Good luck fitting all that into four hours.
The series doesn’t have a script yet, but it does have some serious talent attached to the program.
Scriptwriter and director Courtney Hunt, who made the Oscar-nominated film Frozen River, will take over those two roles. And the task of bringing one of the most powerful women in the world to life, will be given to actress Diane Lane.
It won’t be an entirely positive depiction of Clinton, however, and NBC entertainment executive Bob Greenblatt said that it would be both complimentary and critical of Clinton’s decisions. Greenblatt commented, “I don’t think she will endorse it”.
