Hulu is developing a Hillary Clinton alternate history show

More Hillary Clinton content may be headed to Hulu.

A new scripted series based on Curtis Sittenfeld's novel Rodham, which depicts an alternate history in which former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton never married former President Bill Clinton, is in development at Hulu, The Hollywood Reporter and Variety reported on Wednesday.

Sarah Treem, who co-created Showtime's The Affair, is reportedly on board to write and produce the adaptation, and The Handmaid's Tale executive producer Warren Littlefield will produce as well, writes Variety. For those keeping track at home, this would be the streamer's second time releasing a project about Clinton after Hillary, the four-part documentary series that premiered earlier this year and has apparently now kickstarted a full-blown Hillary Cinematic Universe at Hulu.

Still, the Reporter notes that Rodham is for now only in the development stage and hasn't actually received a full series order quite yet, leaving open the possibility that viewers will end up having to imagine their own alternate history where the show actually happens at all.
