HBO Developing Dick Cheney Mini-Series

Posted: March 23rd, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
HBO Developing Dick Cheney Mini-SeriesSubmit Comment
HBO has optioned the book "Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency" by Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Barton Gellman for a mini-series, which will be based on the best-selling book and the "Frontline" documentary called "Dark Side."

It will tell the story of Richard Bruce Cheney from his early days as Donald Rumsfeld's protege in the Nixon administration, to the nation's youngest Chief of Staff under President Ford, to serving as Secretary of Defense under George H.W. Bush, and through two controversial terms as Vice President under President George W. Bush.

According to the producers, the project will center on Cheney's "single-minded pursuit of enhanced power for the Presidency that was unprecedented in the nation's history."

Rick Cleveland ("Six Feet Under"), who shared a writing Emmy with Aaron Sorkin for NBC's White House drama "The West Wing," is writing the mini-series.

"Why would ANYONE wanna know ANYTHING about this old fart??"

They don't. They want to see HBO turn him into some nefarious comic book villain instead, mostly because Americans are total morons.

@Blank - look at the end run.

Bush used public $'s (military) to destroy Iraq. That's a fact.

Haliburton is rebuilding Iraq. That's obvious.

Stupidity... or such an obvious conspiracy it's really that hard to (want to) believe my friend?

Im gonna say a bit from column A and a lot from column B, run along now chief.
