Netflix has taken its fair share of “boycott” hits lately, thanks to their creepy Satanic-themed shows, their partnership with the dreaded Obamas and disgraced liar Susan Rice, not to mention their relentless drive to push a radical progressive and feminist ideology throughout their roster of original programming.
Netflix has become almost unwatchable.
However, if you still haven’t canceled your subscription to the streaming giant, this latest move might push you right over the edge.
A wretched new ‘feminist series’ inspired by Hillary Clinton’s (failed) journey to break the “glass ceiling,” is coming soon to the Netflix lineup.
These people just can’t let 2016 go, can they? Next up, an entire series about twelve random Russians who bought a few Facebook ads and “destroyed the world.” Good grief.
Netflix continues to get political.
The streamer, which already has an overall deal and multiple projects in the works with the Obamas, has won a multiple-outlet bidding war for The Girls on the Bus, a drama series inspired by a chapter from New York Times journalist Amy Chozick’s novel Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns and One Intact Glass Ceiling.
Julie Plec (Legacies) will pen the script alongside Chozick. Greg Berlanti will executive produce. The series, which ignited a fierce competition from streamers and premium cable networks, hails from Warner Bros. Television, Berlanti Productions and Plec’s My So-Called Company.
Unlike the book, the series will chronicle four female journalists who follow the every move of a parade of flawed presidential candidates, finding friendship, love and a scandal that could take down not just the presidency but our entire democracy along the way. Sources say that while the series is inspired by Chasing Hillary, the Netflix offering is not about Hillary Clinton or the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
The Netflix show title is an homage to The Boys on the Bus, the famed book about the men who used to dominate the campaign trail. The series will be a fictional story with all fictional characters.
Published in April 2018, Chasing Hillary tells the story of the 2016 presidential election that saw former first lady and secretary of state Clinton’s attempt to become the first woman to serve as president of the United States end in defeat to Republican Donald Trump. Chozick chronicled Clinton’s pursuit of the presidency dating back to her failed 2008 campaign. Chozick reported from Clinton’s campaign bus and inside its Brooklyn headquarters, following the candidate through 48 states to tell the story of what really happened. [Hollywood Reporter]
Time and time again we see companies and organizations fail when they opt to place politics above business. Just look at Gillette – they lost $8 billion dollars after they decided to go “full feminist” and attack so-called “toxic masculinity.”
Gillette literally ridiculed and chastised their entire base of customers all in the twisted name of feminism…and it failed miserably.
Good riddance, Gillette. Hello, Dollar Shave Club.
Perhaps Netflix feels they’re too powerful to fall? However, the truth is, no company or organization is too big to fall. Just ask the entire mainstream media, and the NFL how going “political” worked out for them.
