A novel written by former President Bill Clinton and writer James Patterson is already tapped for television adaptation and is now set to hit the small screen as a Showtime series, according to The Hill

It has been reported that the television show will be based on "The President is Missing," a book written by Clinton and the famed mystery writer, which is due to hit stores sometime next year. 

“I'm really enjoying writing this book and working with Jim,” Clinton said of his first novel. “And I can’t wait to see Showtime bring the characters to life.” 

They continued, “Though fictional, the story brings to life the pressures and realities of the most important position in the world."

The novel tells the story of a sitting U.S. president's mysterious disappearance. According to Entertainment Weekly, the book provides a level of detail that only somebody who has held the highest office will be able to show. 

Apparently, the project was widely sought after by studios and networks, with Clinton and Patterson both doing a 16-meeting tour around Hollywood trying to select the right outlet. 

Clinton has written several nonfiction books in the past, but "The President is Missing" marks his first novel. The book will be published in June of 2018. 

In recent news, a Hollywood celebrity just said she would rather swap President Trump with the dictator of North Korea.
