Hillary Clinton TV Show: Diane Lane to Play Hillary in NBC Miniseries

Close

NBC announced the network will be airing a four-hour miniseries, Hillary, about former first secretary of state Hillary Clinton. Actress Diane Lane will star as the former secretary of state.

E! News reported on July 27 that NBC's president Bob Greenblatt said at the 2013 Summer Press Tour on Saturday that no airdate has been set for the project since it's currently in early stages. Greenblatt also said the miniseries will most likely air before Clinton officially announces herself as a presidential candidate for the 2016 election. 

So, who will star opposite Lane as Bill Clinton?

"President Clinton, we haven't cast yet," Greenblatt said. "We literally just closed the deals and haven't written the script. All that will be determined." 

Hillary, written by Courtney Hunt, will tell the story of Clinton's life as  "a wife, mother, politician and cabinet member from 1998 to the present," E! News reported NBC said in a press release. "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."

This isn't the only Clinton project going on right now.  A biopic set during the former first lady's  days working on the Richard Nixon impeachment hearings is reportedly currently in the works. Actresses such as Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson and Amanda Seyfriend are said to be being considered for the role.
