Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly will be a co-executive producer on a new project being developed by Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti along with 20th Century Fox Television and Fox 21 Television Studios, reports Michael O’Connell at The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed blog.

The report adds that the series in development is called “‘The Resident,’ which “reads like a cross between ‘Downton Abbey’ and ‘House of Cards’ [and] follows the relationships between White House residence staffers and the various First Families that come into the famous address over the course of several administrations.”

The project is part of a first-look deal between Trigger Street (the name of Spacey and Brunetti’s company) and the two Fox entities. According to Variety’s version of the story, “All Trigger Street projects developed for broadcast under the pact will be produced by 20th Century Fox, while cable series will hail from Fox 21.”
