Viola Davis can do no wrong on the big and small screens. Comparatively, Michelle Obama can do no wrong in and out of the White House. So, tapping Davis to channel her inner Mrs. Obama for a dramatic series on Showtime is nothing short of a match made in heaven.
Viola will star as our forever FLOTUS in the one-hour White House drama “First Ladies”. Additionally, Davis will executive produce the series that has been put on fast-track development at Showtime with a three-script commitment.
Here’s a synopsis of the series, as described by Deadline:
“First Ladies is set in the East Wing of the White House, where many of history’s most impactful and world-changing decisions have been hidden from view, made by America’s charismatic, complex and dynamic first ladies. The series will peel back the curtain on the personal and political lives of our most enigmatic heroes, with Season 1 focusing on Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Ford and Michelle Obama.”
Fans are already hyped up to see the series…
#ViolaDavis playing Michelle Obama in 'First Ladies' might be the first time a television series wins an Oscar for Best Performance
