Well, after Barack Obama no one thought a female black woman would be interested.
Hollywood's power woman Alfre Woodard is set to become America's next black president. She may not be in the real White House in Washington DC per say; but the actress has agreed to play the role of US black female leader – Roberta Payton - in NBC's drama series, "State of Affairs" which also stars former Grey's Anatomy actress, Katherine Heigl.
From 12 Years A Slave to the White House, Woodard is heading to the top of affairs now and she is ready to kick some a**es. Meanwhile Heigl stars as Charleston "Charlie" Whitney Tucker, a CIA agent plucked from her job to become the President’s legal debriefer. Interestingly enough she is also the ex-girlfriend of President Payton's late son.
The show has been described as "Scandal meets The West Wing," according to The Hollywood Report and fans can’t wait to begin watching.
Do you think President Barack Obama will watch too?
