NBC Reconsiders Hillary Clinton Miniseries, While CBS Eyes Its Own Secretary of State Drama

Aug 17 2013, 7:36pm CDT | by TV Line

Hillary Clinton is providing inspiration for one potential TV project and problems for another.

As TVLine previously reported, the former secretary of state and possible 2016 presidential candidate is the subject of an announced NBC miniseries starring Diane Lane.

But our sister site Deadline reports that the project was the reason behind the Republican National Committee voting Friday to block the Peacock Net — as well as CNN, which is planning to air a documentary on Clinton in 2014 — from hosting GOP primary debates.

Not long after the RNC’s vote, NBC released a statement that leaves the project’s future up in the air.

Citing that the network is only in the script stage regarding the four-hour event, NBC entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt’s remarks seem to indicate that the project may never reach production. “Speculation, demands and declarations pertaining to something that isn’t created or produced yet,” he adds, “seem premature.”

Meanwhile, Fox TV Studios, which had been tentatively attached to producing, has decided not to continue with the telepic.

CBS, however, is moving ahead with its own Hillary-esque drama. Per Deadline, the network is working with Morgan Freeman (The Dark Knight Rises) and Joan of Arcadia creator Barbara Hall to develop Madame Secretary. The potential series will follow a “maverick” female secretary of state at work and at home.

Hall will pen the script, which she’ll executive-produce with Freeman and Through the Wormhole‘s Lori McCreary and Tracy Mercer.

Would you watch a Hillary-based movie and/or series? Does all of this talk just kind of make you wish Political Animals had been renewed? Sound off in the comments!
