Controversial NBC Project on Hillary Clinton May Be Produced by Fox Deadline
Fox Television Studios, a sister company of Fox News, is in discussions with NBC about producing its miniseries about Hillary Clinton, which has been a target of a threatened boycott by the Republican National Committee, Deadline.com reports.
The talks are said to be preliminary, with both sides still far apart, the piece notes.
"The economics of TV movies and miniseries are challenging, which is why very few production companies take on such programs these days. That includes NBC’s own studio, Universal TV, which would not produce NBC’s longform projects, including 'Hillary,'" the piece reports.
As previously reported, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus last week warned NBC and CNN that it will not partner with them on presidential debates during the 2016 election cycle unless they "pull the plug" on two separate projects about the former first lady that are in the works at each network.
