First Ladies is a new drama series starring Viola Davis and coming soon to SHOWTIME. SHOWTIME has given a green light series order to the first season of the hour-long drama FIRST LADIES, starring and executive produced by Oscar, Emmy, and Tony winner Viola Davis, who will play former first lady Michelle Obama. The series is produced by SHOWTIME and Lionsgate Television, and the show will be executive produced by Oscar winner Cathy Schulman (Crash), Jeff Gaspin (Rhythm + Flow), Brad Kaplan (Mr. Church), and author Aaron Cooley, who created the series will write the show.

Showtime describes the show as follows: “In the East Wing of the White House, many of history’s most impactful and world-changing decisions have been hidden from view, made by America’s charismatic, complex and dynamic first ladies. This series will peel back the curtain on the personal and political lives of these enigmatic women, with season one focusing on Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Ford and Michelle Obama.”
