Jennifer Aniston is venturing into new waters for her latest role. Netflix has tapped the “Friends” alum to play America’s first female president.
Aniston’s new role will also be a lesbian, with “One Mississippi” actress Tig Notaro slated to play her wife.
Netflix made the announcement last week. The movie, screenwritten by Notaro, is appropriately titled “First Ladies.”
The movie’s description reads, “Behind every great woman… is another great woman.” The film will follow Beverly Nicholson (Aniston), America’s first female president, and her wife, Kasey (Notaro), as they move into the wife house.
