‘FLOTUS: Playing the Woman Card in the White House’ takes a fresh look at the First Ladies of the United States– how they chose to wield power in the position that has been called “the second hardest job in the world”.
The docu-series is not a history lesson, nor a chronological biography of each First Lady; it’s hybrid programming that is fast-paced, bright, funny, poignant, drawing unexpected connections, spotlighting unusual insights, uncovering unexamined influence, and its underlying dimension—the backstory of women in leadership. It has a multi-bio, non-linear approach, structured by themes, drawing parallels, providing context, and offering unexpected insight: Glamour Girls & Game-Changers (Julia Tyler, Jackie Kennedy); Political Partners (Abigail Adams, Hillary Clinton); Secret Presidents (Eleanor Roosevelt, Edith Wilson, Nancy Reagan); Longer Lens & Legacy (Michelle Obama).
