NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt announced Saturday that the network is developing four new “high-profile” event series. One just happens to be a four-hour miniseries on the life of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The role of Clinton will be played by actress Diane Lane, Greenblatt said, and according to the Hollywood Reporter:

Greenblatt noted the deal for the Clinton biopic just closed and casting has yet to begin for an actor to play Bill Clinton. While the former secretary of state is likely to announce her candidacy for president, Greenblatt said the mini will likely air before then — avoiding concerns about offering about equal time to her potential Republican challenger.

“She’s not going to declare her candidacy for two more years, so I think it will be the late spring or early summer of ’15 that she will declare,” Greenblatt told reporters at a conference in Beverly Hills. “This could well have aired before that. We have to talk through all that.”

“Hilary” will recount Clinton’s life from 1998 to the present, portraying her experiences as a wife, mother, politician and Cabinet member. The series will begin with Clinton living in the White House during her husband’s second term as president, and will include her own presidential campaign in 2008.

Greenblatt told reporters following his presentation that the former first lady hadn’t yet heard of the project, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

If only the miniseries would include some pertinent events from Clinton’s history, featured in this Stop Hillary PAC video.
