The Co-Presidency

Log Line:

With the help of the Associated Press’s first woman reporter, Lorena Hickock, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt mounts a “parallel administration” during her husband’s first term, riling not only FDR but FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover as well, as she promotes social justice causes and lobbies to get more women into key positions.

NOTE: While a mini-series and feature film about Roosevelt and Hickock are now under development, both portend largely imaginary accounts of their personal relationship while underemphasizing the pivotal role both women played in turning the tide on the Great Depression. "The Co-Presidency" was originally inspired by a speech given at the FDR Presidential Library in Hyde Park by Dr. Allida Black.
