Clinton brings women’s voting drama to TV
    2018-08-03  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

HILLARY CLINTON, the former U.S. secretary of state, is teaming with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television to bring Elaine Weiss’ critically acclaimed book “The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote” to the small screen. The drama will mark Clinton’s debut as an executive producer.

The book, published in March, follows the activists who led the decades-long fight to grant women the right to vote and sheds light on how close the battle to ratify the 19th Amendment really was. The book celebrates those who changed history and laid the foundation for the civil rights movement that came decades later.

After optioning the book, Amblin plans to adapt it as either a TV movie or a limited series. The expectation is that Clinton will be actively involved in the search for a writer and eventually the script, director and casting.

Amblin TV, a division of Spielberg’s Amblin Partners, will shop “The Woman’s Hour” to premium cable or streaming platforms.

“The Woman’s Hour” arrives as women continue to battle for rights amid a political landscape in which male lawmakers have attempted to defund Planned Parenthood, among other efforts, and in a culture in which sexual misconduct has exposed how pervasive the problem is in every corner of society.

Clinton’s TV efforts arrive as Barack and Michelle Obama recently inked a multiple-year deal to produce films and series with Netflix and as Bill Clinton is adapting his book “The President Is Missing” with James Patterson as a scripted drama for Showtime.(SD-Agencies)
