Hillary Clinton has been casting about for relevancy ever since she was defeated by Donald Trump in the 2016 Presidential election.
Some pundits believe she is still planning a third run for the White House in 2020.
But her latest announcement about her next career move is not what anyone was expecting.
Hillary Clinton’s next move will be in Hollywood.
The failed two-time Presidential candidate is teaming up with A-List producer Steven Spielberg to produce a series about women winning the right to vote.
Hillary Clinton and Steven Spielberg are joining forces to bring Elaine Weiss’ The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote to television.
Amblin TV, the television production division of Spielberg’s Amblin Partners, has named Clinton as an executive producer of the project, with talks still ongoing as to whether to turn the critically acclaimed book into a series or TV movie. Reports say Netflix, Amazon, Apple and HBO are among the online stream and premium cable networks that Amblin TV will pitch the project to.
In a statement released Wednesday, Clinton said she is “thrilled,” to be working with Amblin Television on the project. “At the heart of democracy lies the ballot box, and Elaine Weiss’ unforgettable book tells the story of the female leaders who — in the face of towering economic, racial and political opposition — fought for and won American women’s right to vote,” the failed presidential candidate said in a statement. “Unfolding over six weeks in the summer of 1920, The Woman’s Hour is both a page-turning drama and an inspiration for everyone, young and old, male and female, in these perilous times. So much could have gone wrong, but these American women would not take no for an answer: their triumph is our legacy to guard and emulate. I am thrilled to be working with Elaine, Steven and everyone at Amblin Television on bringing this important project to audiences everywhere.”
This project would be a natural fit for Clinton.
She could team up with a bunch of Hollywood liberal elites on a vanity project that will receive critical acclaim but few people will watch.
