Plot Synopsis

Narrated by Robin Wright, FIRST LADIES is a six-part documentary series that profiles Michelle Obama, Jackie Kennedy, Nancy Reagan, Eleanor Roosevelt, Lady Bird Johnson, and Hillary Rodham Clinton. Blending in-depth interviews, rare archival footage and cinematic recreations, this series is a bold revision of each woman's traditional portrayal, revealing how they were impacted during their time in the White House, and how their achievements fundamentally shaped American and global history. The series premieres with an extended episode on former first lady Michelle Obama.
On Sunday, November 22, 2020 from 10pm-Midnight ET/7-9pm ET, CNN premieres back-to-back episodes to close out the first season of FIRST LADIES:

"Hillary Rodham Clinton" (10pm ET/7pm PT): After entering the White House in 1992 with former President Bill Clinton, Hillary Rodham Clinton was almost immediately attacked for being too ambitious and too involved in her husband's administration. The criticism did not discourage her, however, and following Bill's scandal, Hillary chose to forge her own path and became a Senator, Secretary of State, and nearly elected as the first female President of the United States.

"Lady Bird Johnson" (11pm ET/8pm PT): The Johnson administration enacted the Civil Rights Act, one of the most prolific legislative programs in U.S. history -- but it likely wouldn't have succeeded without Lady Bird Johnson's steadying presence. Catapulted, by the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, into a role that she didn't prepare for, Lady Bird played a vital role in shaping her husband's presidency.
