It’s proving difficult enough getting a woman into the White House, let alone an LGBTQ one. However, Netflix is going to show us that fiction can do what real-life has failed to with First Ladies. It’s been announced that Jennifer Aniston will play the first female president in the show, with comedian, writer and actor Tig Notaro as her wife.
Notaro also helped come up with the idea for the show and will co-write the script alongside her real-life wife, Stephanie Allynne. Netflix hasn’t released a huge amount of details, except that, ‘First Ladies is a political comedy about America’s first female President and her wife, The First Lady. When Beverly and Kasey Nicholson move into the White House, they’ll prove that behind every great woman… is another great woman.’
Aniston will also produce the series alongside Adam McKay, Will Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum and Betsy Koch. It’s not known when we might get to see the series – it’ll certainly be one to look out for though!
