Drama ‘Rodham’ in Development at Hulu

Proposed Series Based on Best-Selling Novel by Curtis Sittenfeld

Hulu is working with “The Affair” co-creator Sarah Treem to adapt Curtis Sittenfeld’s best-selling novel “Rodham” into a scripted drama series. Published in May, “Rodham” imagines an alternative history where Hillary Rodham never marries Bill Clinton and asks what would have happened to her life, and our country, if she had made a different choice. “Rpdham” tells the story of an ambitious young woman developing her extraordinary mind in the latter part of the 20th century, moving from idealism to cynicism and all the way back again.

Treem will pen the script and exec produce the proposed “Rodham,” which is being produced by Fox 21 Television Studios. Warren Littlefield (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) will also executive produce “Rodham” via The Littlefield Company along with Sittenfeld.

Should “Rodham” go to series, it would be the second project on Hulu focused on Hillary Clinton. The streamer debuted the four-part docuseries “Hillary” in January,” which chronicled her 2016 presidential campaign while also delving into events from her past that shaped her life.
