In late October 2016, a “Mormon mystic and perpetually tired dad” in Bellingham, Washington, tweeted: “Someday, someone is going to adapt the 2016 election into a miniseries and (hopefully) none of our children will believe it.”
Your prediction is their demand, Capybara Archivist.
Filmmaker Mark Boal and producer Megan Ellison are planning a miniseries on the presidential race, reports Deadline.
“Hugo Lindgren, a former editor of the New York Times magazine who now is president of Page 1, is assembling a group of investigative journalists in New York and Washington D.C. as contributors to the project,” Deadline says. “Boal expects to write a script for the series.
The miniseries project is still in early stages, with no broadcast outlet told, Deadline said.
But the election-as-miniseries idea was a recurring thought in 2016.
When they inevitably make a TV movie or miniseries about 2016 election, I’m betting Sarah Paulson will play Hilary Clinton.

In 20 years, I bet I’ll be looking forward to watch the 10 part miniseries on fx about the 2016 election. Can’t wait to see that cast!

Someday, someone is going to adapt the 2016 election into a miniseries and (hopefully) none of our children will believe it.

Can we just skip ahead to the FX miniseries about the 2016 election? I’d like to watch that and be done living through it.
