NBC plans Hillary Clinton miniseries, part of TV event strategy
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - NBC plans to air a four-hour miniseries starring Diane Lane as former US Secretary of State and first lady Hillary Clinton, part of the broadcast TV network's strategy to improve its ratings by luring viewers to one-time event programming.
The part of Bill Clinton has not been cast, NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt said on Saturday at a meeting of the Television Critics Association.
The miniseries about the once, and possibly future, presidential candidate will "recount Clinton's life as a wife, mother, politician and cabinet member" from 1988 to the present, an NBC statement said.
Entitled Hillary, it will start with Mrs Clinton living in the White House while her husband is serving his second term.
