First Ladies - Drama Starring Viola Davis Ordered to Series by Showtime



Showtime has given a straight-to-series order to one-hour drama First Ladies, whose first season stars Viola Davis as former first lady Michelle Obama. Davis also executive produces the series, which was put on fast-track development at the premium cabler last August with a three-script commitment.

Written by Cooley, 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.
