The First Lady
The First Lady

The First Lady is an American television anthology drama series created by Aaron Cooley. The series will explore the personal and political lives of three dynamic First Ladies, tracing their journeys to Washington through interweaving storylines.

The series will see Designated Survivor star Kiefer Sutherland head back to the Oval Office but this time as President Franklin D. Roosevelt, with Gillian Anderson as his wife Eleanor.

The series coming to Showtime in the US and Paramount Plus elsewhere is described as a revelatory reframing of American leadership, told through the lens of the women at the heart of the White House, with Michelle Pfeiffer starring as Betty Ford who entered the White House in 1974 and Viola Davis as a much more recent First Lady, Michelle Obama.
