Hillary Clinton-Inspired TV Show Coming to Philadelphia
Last week, we learned that Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace are coming to town for mob movie Dead Man Down. Today, we can tell you that the USA Network has ordered six episodes of a new political drama, Primary Colors, and that it intends to shoot the show here. A source tells us that the first page of the script includes one of those “any resemblance to any persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental” type of lines but that the protagonist, a woman with personal problems who becomes Secretary of State, is pretty clearly based on actual Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Handsome Lone Star and Happy Endings actor James Wolk has signed on to play the Secretary’s son and Chief of Staff, but there’s no word on who’s taking the lead. Political Animals is the brainchild of Green Lantern producer Greg Berlanti.
