NBC Orders Hillary Clinton Miniseries Starring Diane Lane

NBC has ordered a miniseries about Hillary Clinton set to star Diane Lane as the former first lady and secretary of state.

The network announced the project, which is in the early stages and thus has no firm air date, at a Television Critics Association event.

"We need to be in the event business. I think you're going to hear that from every broadcast network," said Bob Greenblatt, NBC Entertainment chairman of what inspired the choice.

The four-hour miniseries 'Hillary' will chronicle Clinton's career, starting with her husband's Monica Lewinsky scandal in the White House through the present day.

"President Clinton, we haven't cast yet," Greenblatt said. "We literally just closed the deals and haven't written the script. All that will be determined."

For now, NBC is planning to air the miniseries before the former secretary of state declares whether she will run for president in 2016.

'Hillary' isn't the only event programming NBC is working on. In addition to the previously announced 'A.D.: After the Bible', the peacock is developing 'Rosemary's Baby', a series based on Stephen King's The Tommyknockers and 'Plymouth', about the arrival of the pilgrims at Plymouth Rock.
