NBC’s Hillary Clinton Miniseries Will Likely Be Produced by Fox

Remember that Hillary Clinton miniseries coming to NBC? The one that caused RNC chairman Reince Priebus to send a letter to NBC Entertainment’s president threatening to leave NBC out of the 2016 debate schedule?

Well, there is a new twist.

It looks as though Fox will be the producer of the miniseries, the New York TimesBill Carter reports.

Just as NBC News has nothing to do with the miniseries, Fox News will have anything to do with it either. The likely producer is Fox Television Studios, a sister unit to FNC under the 21st Century Fox umbrella. FTVS would retain international distribution rights if they were to produce it.

Whether an association with a Fox company reduces the heat on the Clinton project seems unlikely, however, especially because in this case the criticism has also come from NBC News itself. One longtime senior news executive, who asked not to be identified criticizing the network, called the movie “wildly inappropriate for NBC to be doing.”
