Fox May Produce Hillary Clinton Miniseries, New York Times Reports

Fox Television Studios may produce the GOP-loathed Hillary Clinton miniseries, The New York Times reports.

NBC's plan to air a miniseries focused on Clinton has received major backlash from the GOP and from network journalists. NBC News White House correspondent Chuck Todd declared Thursday, "This miniseries is a total nightmare for NBC News."

Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus threatened Monday not partner with the network if it goes through with its plan.

Fox Television Studios spokesman Leslie Oren told the Times that while no deal is in place, NBC is in early discussions to have Fox studios produce and distribute the film internationally.
