TV Series From ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ Team to Take On the 2016 Presidential Election

Feb 15, 2017  •  Post A Comment

The 2016 presidential election will be revisited in a political drama series that’s in the works from filmmaker Mark Boal and producer Megan Ellison, frequent collaborators who were both involved in Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty,” Deadline.com reports.

The series will reportedly run eight to 10 hours.

“The two said they don’t have a broadcast partner as yet, but their plan is to develop the series through Boal’s Page 1 company, in which Ellison is a partner,” Deadline notes. Boal expects to make his debut as a director on the series, along with writing a script for the project.

“Hugo Lindgren, a former editor of the New York Times magazine who now is president of Page 1, is assembling a group of investigative journalists in New York and Washington D.C. as contributors to the project,” Deadline notes.


  1. Boy, this series should be “riveting.” I’ve volunteered to help with the opening “plot outline.”
    1. While a bevy of super qualified Republican politicians throw their hat in the ring, in a dark, smoke filled room sits an Orange-Haired man, back lit and rubbing his hands together gleefully. In the room are a bunch of shadowy figures, but several of them have very thick Russian accents, and gold coins clink in their pockets as they lounge on divans.
    2. In another sun filled room with flower arrangements everywhere sits a kindly, grandmotherly woman. She’s surrounded by the most attractive and diverse group of people in the history of mankind…wait, scratch that…WOMANKIND! There is very animated and passionate discourse on how to help all the disadvantaged people of the WORLD (not just the U.S.) by making evil, wealthy people “share their ill gotten abundances.
    So there you have it. We’ve established in a very subtle and cunning way, who stands for the “LIGHT” and who empowers the “DARKNESS.”
    Please watch my show. You’ll never guess what we have planned for the 2nd episode…

  2. One error – the wealthy people never give away their money (even the evil ones). Only the middle class pay more taxes to help those in power stay in power by buying votes from the poor by making false promises to improver their situation which never happens.
