    The Philly Post has gotten word that a new USA Network TV series, which is widely believed to be loosely based on the life of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is going to be filmed in Philadelphia.

     

    The network has ordered six episodes of the political drama, called “Political Animals,” slated to premiere in the summer. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the protagonist is a divorced former first lady and current secretary of state, “who is struggling to keep her family together while dealing with conflicts of the State Department.”

    Of course, the similarities may (and probably do) end there. No word yet on what the real Mrs. Clinton thinks of the show.
