Comedic Film About Working In The Obama Administration Is In The Works

Looks like we’ll have a chance to see Obama in the White House one more time.

A film adaptation of “From the Corner of the Oval,” written by White House stenographer Beck Dorey-Stein, is in the works. The adaption, which is being optioned by Universal Pictures, will be a comedic look at working in the White House during President Barack Obama’s tenure.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, “From the Corner of the Oval” follows a young woman living in Washington D.C. who is at an all-time career low when — through a twist of fate — she goes from serving cocktails to lobbyists to being hired as a stenographer in the Obama White House.

The ultimate “fish out of water” tale, she stumbles into an elite world and finds herself navigating a series of misadventures in life and love.

In addition to this new project, portions of Obama’s life have been made into films with Netflix’s Barry and 2016’s Southside with You

Obama is currently living his best life, splitting his time between Washington, D.C. and New York, planning media engagements, a speaking tour and working with The Obama Foundation
