A former White House stenographer and Universal Pictures have joined forces to bring the people an Obama-era White House Comedy film!
So, according to The Hollywood Reporter, From The Corner of the Oval is a two part deal! We hear Beck Dorey-Stein, the former stenographer, has pitched the idea of a book–also titled “The Corner of the Oval” which got picked up by Universal to turn into a film.
Long story short, the storyline follows a waitress who ended up working in the White House. Short story long, the waitress, a woman, lives in Washington, D.C. and is at an “all-time career low;” but life couldn’t keep her down. Life takes a turn for her which landed her in the White House “navigating a series of misadventures in life and love.”
There is not concrete air date for the movie–however we hear that the book will be published in 2018.
I know you’re wondering: “how much will the film focus on the Obamas?!” I had the same thought!
The Jasmine Brand reports that the movie will focus less on the fort family, and more on the White House and it’s staffers!
Michael Sugar, Ashley Zalta, and Nicole Clemens are the films producers.
