Trump Election Set for HBO Miniseries From ‘Game Change’ Team

Halfway into Donald Trump’s initial 100 days as President of a United States, and someone has already consecrated a cinematic diagnosis of a prolonged and frequently absurd choosing that put him in office.

HBO is set to account a events of a new presidential election, many as they did in 2012 telepic Game Change — usually this time it will be stretched to a miniseries. Also like Game Change, a yet-to-be-titled plan will be destined by Jay Roach and formed on source element from Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. The duo’s book about Trump’s overwhelming 2016 dissapoint over Hillary Clinton is set to be published by Penguin Press.

Game Change, itself a pseudo-sibling of 2000 choosing film Recount, didn’t atmosphere until 4 years after a events depicted. It focused on a account from a side of John McCain’s losing debate — particularly a argumentative figure of clamp presidential hopeful Sarah Palin, played by Julianne Moore. (Players from a Barack Obama side of choosing were mostly featured in chronological footage.)

“We are anxious to continue a attribute with Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, whose work on their best-selling book Game Change set a bar for domestic stating and storytelling inside a presidential campaign,” HBO Films boss Len Amato pronounced in a statement. “Reuniting Game Change executive and executive writer Jay Roach and Playtone producers Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman with Mark and John for a plan formed on their arriving book promises to vividly constraint a many singular and impactful eventuality in complicated American politics.”

There’s a dominance for status in a project. Game Change was nominated for 12 Emmys and won five, including for superb TV movie, director, essay and singer for Moore. The film was blending by Empire co-creator Danny Strong, though no clerk is now trustworthy to this follow-up.

Though it’s not immediately transparent that players in a 2016 soap show will be featured, it seems protected to assume that both Trump and Clinton will be during a core of a miniseries. Picking a actors to play a span will be something of an eventuality in itself. (It’s rarely doubtful that Alec Baldwin skeleton to make a career out of impersonating Trump, though his Saturday Night Live satire is certain to during slightest come adult in a conversation.)

And, for a Clintons, this is now one of several scripted miniseries in that they’ll play a role. Ryan Murphy recently announced that a third run of his American Crime Story miniseries on FX would retell the Monica Lewinsky scandal that roughly broken Bill Clinton’s second tenure as president.

It’s some-more feathers in a caps of Halperin and Heilemann. The achieved reporters are also hosts and executive producers of Showtime news array The Circus. (Originally designed only for a 2016 election, Showtime recently regenerated it to account a Trump administration’s initial 100 days.)
