Nick Nolte as a guilt-ridden ex-President? You’ve got our attention.

It’s only a matter of time before more and more cable networks opt to go into scripted programming no matter what their branding is or was before. 

The latest to join in is Epix as they have just ordered their first original comedy series that follows Nick Nolte as a former President of the United States, 20 years after his administration, trying to make up for snafus he made during his presidency. On top of that, his ex-wife is making a run at President.

The premise itself is incredibly intriguing and Nolte seems perfect for the role. Assuming that this series would premiere sometime next year, it’ll be interesting to see any similarities to Hillary Clinton that they ex-wife might have.
