A little over a year out from what's set to be a historic election, many executives in the entertainment industry have turned to political commentary.
With Ryan Murphy's American Crime Story: Impeachment and The Politician, and now an entire Showtime series dedicated to former First Ladies, next year's slate of TV shows will be a deep-dive into the White House.
Casting these iconic women was sure to be a challenge, but Showtime had just the right woman in mind for one of the roles — Viola Davis as Michelle Obama. The internet is obsessed with the choice because it's just downright perfect as both women are staunch feminists. Davis has portrayed smart, capable, feminist women in the past, and Obama will be no different.
