Netflix seems to be on a mission lately to alienate conservative subscribers.
On top of their producing partnership with the Obamas, the streaming giant is now reportedly producing a show about one of the least interesting topics in the world: Hillary Clinton’s lifeless attempts to win the presidency.
The show will be based on the book “Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns and One Intact Glass Ceiling,” which was authored by Amy Chozick. Netflix won the rights to the book in a pricey bidding war.
Despite being based around Hillary Clinton, the story will reportedly not have the failed presidential candidate as its main character.
“Unlike the book, the series will chronicle four female journalists who follow the every move of a parade of flawed presidential candidates, finding friendship, love and a scandal that could take down not just the presidency but our entire democracy along the way,” writes The Hollywood Reporter. “Sources say that while the series is inspired by Chasing Hillary, the Netflix offering is not about Hillary Clinton or the 2016 U.S. presidential election.”
Great. So it sounds like if you take “Sex and City” and deprive it of fun and fashion, it will be this show.
Chozick’s actual book works as more of a chronicle of her own life as she covered Hillary Clinton’s career at The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. Daily Wire described it in 2018 as “a sort-of ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary’ meets ‘What it Takes’ coming-of-age rom-com set on the campaign trail, with a tragic twist at the end (spoiler alert: Clinton lost).”
Chozick reported from both Clinton’s campaign bus and her Brooklyn headquarters while the former secretary of state ran for president.
Again, does this sound fun or interesting?
The Netflix project will reportedly be titled “The Girls on the Bus” and it is based on one chapter in Chozick’s book.
Julie Plec will help write the script with Chozick. Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Arrow,” “Doom Patrol”) will help produce.
Hollywood cannot let Hillary Clinton go. They’ve now gotten so desperate in their push for the controversial politician that they’ve taken to creating content that tries to brighten up her image by focusing on every character they can think of except her.
Netflix is up to some impressive things these days. They’ve reunited Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, and Martin Scorsese for the first time in years for “The Irishman” and they’re producing non-political, intelligent content like “The Highwaymen” and “Mindhunter,” but what do they have to gain from this political nonsense? All uninspired content from failed politicians does is alienate fans.
Folks have already taken to social media to collectively roll their eyes at Netflix’s latest Clinton deal.
“Netflix is wasting a lot of time and money trying to keep Hillary relevant!!” conservative commentator David J. Harris tweeted about the deal.
Many have jumped in with humorous suggestions for titles for the new project.
“Fifty shades of nay,” suggested Chris Loesch.
