AceShowbiz - Six months after Donald Trump unexpectedly won the Presidential election, Sony Pictures Television unit TriStar Television is going to develop a TV show which will highlight Hillary Clinton's campaign loss. TriStar reportedly has optioned "Shattered", a book written by journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes about Clinton's shocking upset.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources say that the new TV show will be made as a limited series, although a network has not been attached yet. The site further reports that TriStar "is eyeing premium cable networks like HBO, Showtime and Starz as well as streaming services like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu."
John Davis and John Fox's SPT-based Davis Entertainment banner are set to produce the limited series. Davis and FOX previously teamed up for NBC's "The Blacklist", FOX's "Behind Enemy Lines" pilot and ABC's Zach Braff comedy pilot "Start Up". They haven't got a writer onboard the series.
Deputy communications director for Clinton's campaign Christina Reynolds, however, previously expressed dissatisfaction with the book's portrayal of the campaign. She wrote on her Twitter account, "The campaign wasn't easy, but I don't agree with the depiction in a new book. My take on our HFA family:"

"Shattered" TV series comes on the heels of HBO's adaptation of Mark Halperin and John Heilemann's book about Trump's 2016 upset win which was announced two months earlier. Jay Roach ("Game Change") will direct the Trump miniseries, while Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman will executive produce.
