Viola Davis is set to star as my forever FLOTUS Michelle Obama in the forthcoming Showtime series, “First Ladies.”
According to Deadline, Viola will executive produce the project through her and her hubby Julius Tennon’s JuVee Productions.
“First Ladies” is set in the East Wing of the White House, where many of history’s most impactful and world-changing decisions have been hidden from view, made by America’s charismatic, complex and dynamic first ladies.
The series will peel back the curtain on the personal and political lives of our most enigmatic heroes, with Season 1 focusing on Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Ford and Michelle Obama.
In a post on her Instagram page, Viola Davis wrote, “Proud to spotlight these brave, extraordinary women! #FirstLadies“
