Netflix has ordered a series from Julie Plec based on Amy Chozick’s memoir about Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaigns, “Chasing Hillary.”

The series, “Girls on the Bus,” is directly inspired by a chapter of the same name in Chozick’s book, though it is not about Clinton nor the 2016 election.

According to Netflix’s official description of the series, “the show chronicles 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.”

Plec will write and executive produce with Chozick, with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schecter also on board as executive producers. The series is from Berlanti Productions and My So-Called Company in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Chozick’s book, “Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns and One Intact Glass Ceiling,” chronicled both of the former first lady’s White House campaigns. It was first published in April 2018 by HarperCollins. Clinton lost in the 2008 primary to Barack Obama, before losing to Donald Trump in the general election in 2016. Clinton was the first female to win a major party’s nomination.

Chozick is a journalist for the New York Times.
