    No Amy Poehler? NBC Entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt announced on Saturday that the network will be planning a movie about Hillary Clinton, to be aired prior to the 2016 election and starring Diane Lane. The movie is still in the early stages: there is no completed script yet, let alone an actor cast to play Bill Clinton. Hillary will follow the former Secretary of State from the first days after the Lewinsky scandal in 1998 until the present day. The script will be written by Frozen River writer Courtney Hunt.
