The First Lady is an upcoming anthology series that will explore the personal and political lives of the White House’s former First Ladies, including Michelle Obama, who will be played by the iconic Viola Davis. Meanwhile, O-T Fagbenle will take on the role of Barack Obama.
The show is written and produced by Aaron Cooley and the first season will centre around Eleanor Roosevelt – who will be played by Gillian Anderson – Betty Ford – portrayed by Michelle Pfeiffer and Michelle Obama.
Needless to say, both How To Get Away With Murder’s Viola Davis and The Handmaid’s Tale’s O-T Fagbenle will surely be doing their roles justice!
The official release date of The First Lady is yet to be revealed, so make sure to stay tuned!
