I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to watch The First Lady, a Showtime original series set to premiere April 17th. This American anthology drama series, set for 10 episodes, was created by Aaron Cooley and features an iconic cast. Viola Davis is a doppelgänger lookalike as she plays Michelle Obama; Jayme Lawson plays a younger Michelle.
Betty Ford is played by Michelle Pfeiffer with Kristine Froseth playing the younger Betty. Gillian Anderson enacts and looks convincing in the part of Eleanor Roosevelt. This series will refashion American presidencies from the perspective of these First Ladies, looking at both their political and personal experiences, as well as the fashion of their lives. I think this series will be a ‘can’t miss!’ Me? I will definitely be structuring my Sunday evenings around airing of this series. Don’t even think about calling me during show times!

Oh, and I’ll be doing a recap post after every episode…as they say in TV-stay tuned!
