Jennifer Aniston and Tig Notaro set to play the presidential gay couple in Netflix's 'First Ladies'
Jennifer Aniston will play America's first female president in Netflix's First Ladies, with One Mississippi's Tig Notaro starring as her wife
It has been confirmed that Jennifer Aniston will play America's first female president in Netflix's First Ladies. The cherry on top will be with One Mississippi's Tig Notaro starring as her wife.
The political comedy centers on a gay couple, Beverly and Kasey Nicholson, who will be America’s first female President and her wife, the First Lady. The story renders a powerful message promising to show that behind every great woman is another great woman.
The script is co-written by Notaro and her fiance Stephanie Allynne, hinting on their original pitch. Aniston, Notaro and Allyne are producing the show, along with Adam McKay, Will Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum and Betsy Koch for Gloria Sanchez Productions.Screenwriterr, Chris Henchy, will be the executive producer.
First Ladies isn't the only Netflix series the award-winning actresses are working on. For Aniston, she has set on a separate relationship with the network starring opposite Adam Sandler in comedy Murder Mystery, while Notaro will debut her next comedy special Tig Notaro: Happy to Be Here on the streamer.
Aniston has also teamed up with Apple TV comedy alongside Reese Witherspoon, who played her sister on Friends. The show is said to be taking place behind the scenes of a morning news show. It's due later this year. Notaro's One Mississippi, was canceled by Amazon earlier this year.
However, what's great about the ladies coming together for a new Netflix show is that it comes at a time when House of Cards, the network's first White House series is getting ready to retire its first couple (the sixth and final season premieres later this year, without Kevin Spacey).
While Notaro's latest stand-up comedy special debuts on Netflix on May 22, no premiere date for First Ladies has been announced
Notaro is repped by ICM Partners and Integral. Aniston is repped by CAA and Lighthouse.
