- Los Angeles, July 28 (IANS) US TV network NBC is set to come out with a four-hour mini-series titled "Hillary", about former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, with Diane Lane essaying the title role.
While the release date has not been announced yet as the project is currently in the early stages, NBC's president Bob Greenblatt said the mini-series is likely to go on air before Clinton formally declares herself as a presidential candidate in 2016, reports eonline.com.
Written by Oscar nominee Courtney Hunt, "Hillary" will recount Clinton's life as "a wife, mother, politician and cabinet member from 1998 to the present," said a press release from NBC.
"The script will begin with Clinton living in the White House as her husband (former US president Bill Clinton) is serving the second of his two terms as president. In the years following, she would eventually become a United States senator, run for president and, ultimately, serve the country as secretary of state," it added.
