Trailer for The First Lady series drops and it looks like an instant camp classic
The trailer has dropped for Showtime’s new series focussing on America’s notable First Ladies and it looks epic. Legend Viola Davis is playing Michelle Obama, Gillian Anderson takes on Eleanor Roosevelt and that’s only bloody Michele Pfeiffer as Betty Ford!
We might be overhyping this but these are three or our favourite actors and it looks like it’s going to DRAMA from start to finish. We can just imagine Michelle Obama settling down with a big ole bucket of popcorn to see just how Davis is going to portray her.
As for Gillan Anderson, she’s fresh off doing a sterling job as Maggie Thatcher in The Crown (and we stan her in Sex Education) and Michelle Pfeiffer can literally do ANYTHING and we’d love it. No word yet on if there’s gong to be a second season but there’s plenty of First Ladies to choose from. Jackie Kennedy anyone? Melania?! That would be pure nuts.
The First Lady premieres on Showtime on April 17, check your local listings to find out how you can catch it.
