Viola Davis is set to portray Michelle Obama in a Showtime series under development about America's first ladies.
Davis also is an executive producer on the project, which Showtime said Monday will "peel back the curtain" on the lives of presidential spouses.
The first season will focus on Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Ford and Obama.
Showtime said it's committed to three scripts for the proposed series. There is no air date since the series has yet to be greenlighted.
Honoured to be a part of the project, Davis tweeted: "Proud to spotlight these brave, extraordinary women! #FirstLadies."
