We’re in for possibly the greatest treat of all time! It’s said that Viola Davis is set to play Michelle Obama in a new TV series, First Ladies. The show is reportedly focusing on the personal and political lives of the First Ladies of the United States.
Not much has been released on the show but we know that some First Ladies that will be included are Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Ford, and of course, Michelle Obama. All of the information on the show will be provided from public domain and records and will refrain from going by word of mouth.
While portraying Mrs. Obama, Davis will also act as an executive producer on the project. So basically she’s going to make sure this female empowerment show will be perfect.
The series will air on Showtime, but no air date or time has yet been announced. We’ll be here waiting. Because we NEED this. Especially with casting as good as this!
