The former president is apparently a Hollywood screenwriter now.
Former President Bill Clinton has been working on his first fiction novel with author James Patterson, a thriller entitled The President Is Missing. The book is about, obviously, a president of the United States who goes missing.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Showtime has bought the television rights to the thriller and will produce “a full-blown ongoing drama series.”
Various Hollywood interests have sought the rights to the project, but Patterson and Clinton ultimately settled with Showtime:
“Bringing The President Is Missing to Showtime is a coup of the highest order,” said Showtime president and CEO David Nevins. “The pairing of President Clinton with fiction’s most gripping storyteller promises a kinetic experience, one that the book world has salivated over for months and that now will dovetail perfectly into a politically relevant, character-based action series for our network.”
Of course, Clinton has been a darling of the left ever since his Democratic presidency in the 1990s, and a partnership between the two is no surprise.
Clinton’s novel will come out in 2018.
