I just assumed the first lady-loving First Couple to head to the White House would be Oprah and Gayle King (“Fuck you,” –Cynthia Nixon), but Netflix is apparently more in line with the idea of Rachel Green and Tig Notaro.
Deadline says Netflix has bought First Ladies, a movie starring Jennifer Aniston as the U.S. president and Tig Notaro as her wife. If President Aniston was a real thing, the only two things available to buy at every store would be Smart Water and Aveeno products, and we’d have to find a way to make a meal out of that. Deadline described the movie like this:
When Beverly and Kasey Nicholson move into the White House, they’ll prove that behind every great woman… is another great woman.
And when they stroll into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, I’m sure Donald Trump will jump out and go, “Chick-on-chick in the Lincoln Bedroom has been the only thing I’ve ever wanted since the inauguration. How about it girls?”
Will Ferrell is a producer, and the move is yet another streaming show for Jen (she’s already working on one about morning television with Reese Witherspoon for Apple). It also really shows how Netflix can’t seem to get enough of Tig. She’s directing Ellen DeGeneres’ upcoming comedy special for the network, and her own special will come out later this month. Tig is writing the script with her wife Stephanie Allynne, who was also in One Mississippi with her.
The last time a 90s sitcom star played the president/vice-president in something, she ended up with so many awards that I’m sure the ground under the room where she keeps all her awards collapsed from all the weight. So Hell might want to have some heating installed, because there is a chance it’s going to freeze after the words, “and the Oscar goes to Jennifer Aniston,” are said.
