The First Lady, a new anthology series on Showtime, premieres on Sunday, April 17, at 9:00 p.m. ET. In this new series, the leadership of the American people is reframed through the perspective of the First Ladies, looking at the impact they had on American society, as well as the pressures and expectations put on them. From maintaining the heart of the biggest “home” in the country to being role models for traditional wives and women, the First Ladies strove to find their own identities and use their positions to enact their personal form of positive leadership and cultural change. The all-star cast in the first season is led by Viola Davis as Michelle Obama, Michelle Pfeiffer as Betty Ford, and Gillian Anderson as Eleanor Roosevelt.
