With House of Cards going off the air in the near future as well as Veep, there’s going to be a lack of female presidents in the near future. But it appears Jennifer Aniston’s decided to fill in that void.
Aniston is set to star in a new Netflix comedy called First Ladies. The movie is about the first lesbian couple to make it into the White House. Aniston will play the president while comedian Tig Notaro will play her first lady. Notaro also helped co-write the film. Aniston’s character will also be the first female president of the United States of America, meaning she’ll be breaking down multiple barriers upon her election.
Here is the brief description for the movie: “When Beverly and Kasey Nicholson move into the White House, they’ll prove that behind every great woman… is another great woman.”
Notaro is becoming one of Netflix’s most popular partners recently. Later this month, her standup comedy special will air on the streaming service, and she’s also set to direct Ellen Degeneres’ standup special for Netflix as well.
If this movie is even half as funny as Veep, which is also about a female president, then it will be absolutely hilarious.
