ABC's upcoming series sees a woman US President

MUMBAI: US broadcaster ABC has announced that production work has begun on the drama series Commander In Chief.

The show will star Oscar winner Geena Davis The Acccidental Tourist as the first female president of the US. The series will air Tuesdays at 9 pm at a later date.

Davis' character Mackenzie Allen the 45-year-old Independent Vice President of the US is about to venture into territory no woman has entered before. While at an official ceremony with husband and Chief of Staff Rod Allen (Kyle Secor), she is informed by the President's Chief of Staff and the Attorney General that President Bridges is about to undergo emergency brain surgery for a tumor.

Mackenzie is stunned when she is told that in the event the President does not recover, the party doesn't want her to succeed him. Instead, she's asked to step down in order to allow the Speaker of the House to assume the post, as he shares the party's ideals.

Mackenzie's doubts are confirmed when she visits President Bridges at the hospital and hears from him directly that he wants her to resign. Bridges dies before transition plans are finalised. However after sitting through an insulting and sexist conversation with Speaker of the House Nathan Templeton (Donald Sutherland), Mackenzie decides to forge ahead and assume the presidency, despite the obstacles that lie ahead.

Aside from the challenges Mackenzie faces, her husband has his own hurdles to overcome, as he finds himself being ushered into a pink and feminine office by the First Lady's aide. Her children, six-year-old Amy (Jasmine Anthony), as well as twins Horace (Matt Lanter), one of the most popular kids in school, and Rebecca (Caitlin Wachs), a rebellious teenager with raging hormones. They must also learn to deal with their mother's new role as leader of the free world.
