Along with an adaptation of Stephen King’s Tommyknockers, NBC announced it is developing a four-hour miniseries that will star Diane Lane as Secretary of State (and possible presidential candidate) Hillary Clinton.
Bob Greenblatt, entertainment chairman for NBC, made the announcement at this year’s TCAs and said that it will look at Clinton’s life as a wife, mother and politician.
The deal was finalized this weekend, Greenblatt said Clinton does not have any part of this and doesn’t think she even knows about it. According to Deadline, he said she’s “not going to be involved at all” and continued by saying, “If I were her, I can’t imagine she’d have anything to say about it yet.”
Oscar nominee Courtney Hunt will write the script for the special.
