President Trump and Hillary Clinton's 2016 election was theatrical enough in reality. Now the race is getting a television adaptation by Oscar-winning writer Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) and producer Megan Ellison (Zero Dark Thirty, Her). The duo announced plans for a mini-series based on the election, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The duo previously collaborated on film thriller Zero Dark Thirty, which chronicled another monumental headline from recent years: the hunt and Navy S.E.A.L. killing of al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden. Page 1 president Hugo Lindgren, former editor at New York Times Magazine, is reportedly assembling a team of journalists to serve as investigative reporters for the project.
Recently, Clinton also announced plans to reflect on the race in a new book, due out later this year. The as-yet-untitled project will be structured as a series of personal essays inspired by favourite quotations.
