Viola Davis and premium cable network Showtime are partnering to put a focus on First Ladies.
The network will air the one-hour drama First Ladies from Viola Davis' JuVee Productions.
The Oscar winning actress is set to play former first lady Michelle Obama.
The focus of the first season, which will peel back the curtain on the personal and political lives of these enigmatic women, will revolve around Obama, Eleanor Roosevelt and Betty Ford.
The other two main characters have not yet been cast.
Davis is known for her role as Annalise Keating on ABC's How to Get Away with Murder, which will end in May.
