Netflix announced plans today for a new project starring Jennifer Aniston as the first female president of the U.S. — with Tig Notaro to play her wife. “First Ladies” is being written by Notaro and Stephanie Allynne based on their original pitch.
Here’s the log line released by Netflix: “‘First Ladies’ is a political comedy about America’s first female president and her wife, the first lady. When Beverly and Kasey Nicholson move into the White House, they’ll prove that behind every great woman … is another great woman.”
Producers are listed as Tig Notaro, Stephanie Allynne, Jennifer Aniston, and Adam McKay, Will Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum and Betsy Koch for Gloria Sanchez Productions. Executive producer is Chris Henchy.
“First Ladies” expands Notaro’s relationship with Netflix. Her original comedy special “Tig Notaro Happy to Be Here” premieres May 22 on Netflix. Notaro will also direct Ellen DeGeneres’ upcoming Netflix original comedy special.
