I wonder if Bill and Hill will get any residuals for being the inspirations for this new show:
At the epicenter of the drama is the divorced former First Lady, who’s the current Secretary of State, having recently lost the presidential nomination.
Elaine Barrish – that’s the name of Weaver’s character – has got a philandering ex-husband; she’s also got twin sons, and The Good One is her chief of staff.
Barrish struggles to keep her family together while simultaneously dealing with the crises of the State Department. USA had ordered six episodes of the series, for which it has just cast the actress best known for “Aliens,” and “Avatar,” and “Working Girl,” and “The Year of Living Dangerously.”
The series premiere covers straw that broke the camel’s back of the “fictional” couple’s marriage. In the episode, which is entitled “I was just cleaning it and it went off,” watch for cameos by characters named “Harmonica Flutinsky” and “Flick Norris,” as well as an appearance by the re-set button.
