    NBC Entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt opened his Television Critics Assn. exec session by talking up the Peacock’s “year of improvement” and unveiling four high-profile longform projects in the works.

    Greenblatt said the Peacock is working on a miniseries about Hillary Clinton to star Diane Lane; a reboot of “Rosemary’s Baby”; a new version of Stephen King’s “Tommyknockers”; and a historical project with Mark Burnett about the pilgrims’ landing at Plymouth Rock.

    Greenblatt emphasized that networks “need to be in the event business…. All of (the new projects) have their own event nature.”

    The role of Bill Clinton has not yet been cast, nor is there a completed script yet, Greenblatt said. He said the mini would likely air before Hillary Clinton formally declares herself to be a presidential candidate in 2016.

    NBC has more special event projects that will be unveiled in the coming weeks, Greenblatt said.

    Greenblatt cites the network’s success in making improvements on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights last season, which was a big goal going into the year.

    Promising role and miniseries indeed, but it’s not on HBO.

    NBC making a Hillary Clinton miniseries and not headlining it with Amy Poehler is utter bullshit.

    Love Diane Lane and wish her the best, but this should be AMY’s vehicle.

    So you’d want Poehler to take her impression into a dramatic context? That would be a very hard task for her to pull off and audiences to accept.

    Amy Poehler as a real Hillary Clinton? I don’t think so.

    Will this be released before the Rodham biopic? Seems like NBC is always three steps behind.

    Yeah, I don’t know guys. While I adore Poehler’s Hillary impression, the notion of her taking it to a dramatic route would be like asking Tina Fey to play the lead in Game Change, which would’ve been interesting, sure, but perhaps not as effective as Julianne Moore’s interpretation (at least in the manner that Jay Roach and Danny Strong intended).

    Really wish the best for Diane Lane.

    Although it seems premature to make a biopic (of sorts) about a figure who may not yet be out of national politics, I’m looking forward to this. Best of luck to NBC. Hopefully they’ll have a hit.

    A&E had a McCain movie and there have been shows or movies revolving around current Presidents or politicians. Bush was portrayed by Timothy Bottoms in both comedic and dramatic shows/movies. Hope it goes forward and it is good!

    It was always a risk. Because NBC will be hosting NBC news debates between Democrats and Republicans running for President. But at the same NBC is airing a HIllary movie? Or has put one in circulation. That will around for the Emmys in September 2014 or 2015? BUt I am also assuming any Democrat will run against Hillary which almost doesn’t seem likely! Though even Gore got one in Bradley.

    Sorry to go a bit off-topic, but does anyone think “That’s My Bush” deserved any awards recognition?
