They say politics are much like Hollywood and one politician is about to test that theory first hand.
Former First Lady Hilary Clinton, along with her daughter Chelsea Clinton, set to start a film production company and rumor has it that the two are already in negotiations with major studios to finance said venture.
The production company, which is in its early stages and does not yet have a name, will spotlight stories by and about women. This move is in line with some of Hillary Clinton’s recent non-political endeavors, including her executive producing debut on women’s suffrage TV drama “The Woman’s Hour” and her cameoon the fifth season premiere of CBS’ “Madam Secretary.”
Hillary Clinton, who is worldly know for running for president twice, representing the New York State as a Senator, and was politically active as the First Lady during Bill Clinton’s presidency in the ’90s. She also had a film about her 1969 gap year, Magdalena Zyzak and Zachary Cotler’s “When I’m a Moth,” which premiered at the San Francisco Film Festival in April. Addison Timlin (“Californication”) stars as Hillary.
Chelsea Clinton is an author, activist, and global health advocate. She has written about feminism, endangered species, and civic engagement in children’s books “She Persisted,” “She Persisted Around the World: 13 Women Who Changed History,” “Don’t Let Them Disappear,” and “Start Now! You Can Make a Difference.” She co-penned “Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why?” with Devi Lalita Sridhar.
