NBC Cancels Hillary Clinton Mini-Series Starring Diane Lane

NBC has canceled the highly anticipated mini-series following the life of Hillary Clinton that was to star Diane Lane as the politician.

“After reviewing and prioritizing our slate of movie/mini-series development, we’ve decided that we will no longer continue developing the Hillary Clinton mini-series,” the network announced (via Deadline).

The news comes just hours after CNN announced they have scrapped plans to produce a documentary about Hillary.

The Republican National Committee has placed a lot of pressure on the networks to cancel their projects as they felt it was unfair publicity for Hillary in the upcoming presidential election, even though she hasn’t officially said she will run yet. According to some reports, the Clinton camp also was not in favor of the films.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of NBC and CNN both canceling their Hillary Clinton films?

    Maybe during research for the project, the producers and writers discovered what complete liars and corrupt criminal minds she and her husband are.

    Republicans getting pull in Hollywood? Blech.

  • Abernathy

    @FDL:

    Sure. Blame Republicans instead of the Clintons themselves for decades of lies and corruption. What a cop-out. And irrational. Because the GOP has zero pull in Hollywood and everyone knows that.

    Hillary (What difference does it make??) Clinton and her cheating husband need to retire from politics; the sooner the better.

  • Landy

    Oh please!! Stop trying to make this a political thing. Like the entertainment industry really cares about being ‘fair’ to the republican party. They just know nobody’s going to watch the thing. The canceled in lieu of a ratings flop.

    Hillary doesnt need extra publicity to win the next election. She already has it in the bag and she hasnt even said she’s running yet.

    Diane Lane as Hillary – don’t want to sound superficial, but couldn’t they find some less beautiful and more like Hillary. Who would they get to play Bill – Brad Pitt…lol?

    @catherine – Hillary appears to have a million devoted fans – not enough to win mayor of New York!
