Hillary Clinton Four-Hour Miniseries In Works, Before 2016 Election

LOS ANGELES: Well in advance of the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Rodham Clinton is a big story.

NBC announced Saturday that it was preparing a four-hour miniseries based on Clinton’s life and hoped to broadcast it before any possible formal declaration that she was running. That would avoid the possibility of other candidates demanding equal time, said Robert Greenblatt, NBC’s top entertainment executive.

Mr Greenblatt said NBC bought the project even though it had no script yet, though the deal came with a star attached: Diane Lane, who was nominated for an Academy Award in 2003 for her leading role in the film “Unfaithful.” The Clinton project will be written and directed by Courtney Hunt, who was nominated for an Oscar for writing the film “Frozen River.”

NBC’s release described the project as a miniseries that would “recount Clinton’s life as a wife, politician and Cabinet member from 1998 to present.” That would include her run for the presidential nomination in 2008.
