The yet untitled miniseries will tell the story of Trump's "dramatic, improbable victory" over Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, as described by the network.

Jay Roach will direct and serve as an executive producer with Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman, who produced Game Change, which told the story of the 2008 US presidential election campaign of John McCain and his running mate Sarah Palin, and starred Julianne Moore, Woody Harrelson and Ed Harris.
