Viola Davis has already won Emmy, Golden Globe, Oscar and Tony awards but may win over the people when she takes on the role of "Forever First Lady" Michelle Obama.
The acclaimed actress and producer has signed on to play Obama in a series titled "First Ladies" which is in the works at Showtime, reported Monday.
According to Variety, the network has given the prospective one-hour series a three-script commitment, with "Shaken, Not Stirred" novelist Aaron Cooley on board to write and executive produce.
The one-hour drama Lionsgate project will peel back the curtain on the personal and political lives of first ladies from throughout history, with season one focusing on Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Ford and Obama.
Instead of focusing on the West Wing of the White House _ where all of the world-changing decisions are made _ "First Ladies" will shine on the East Wing of the White House, where the first ladies rule the roost.
Davis and her husband and producing partner Julius Tennon will serve as executive producers on the project via their Los Angeles-based JuVee Productions company.
Obama has been portrayed on film before; "The Haves and The Have Nots" vixen Tika Sumpter portrayed a younger version in Richard Tanne's 2016 indie film "Southside With You."
In July, it was announced that Davis will end her five-year, six-season stint leading the Shonda Rhimes-produced crime drama series "How to Get Away with Murder."
