Fox Pulls Out of Hillary Miniseries Deal

Well, that's not a total surprise. Fox Entertainment announced Friday that, though the company had initially planned involvement with the proposed NBC Hillary Clinton miniseries, it is pulling out of the deal. The announcement came the day that the Republican National Committee, unenthused by the proposed miniseries, voted to ban NBC from airing any 2016 primary debates. However, both Fox and NBC maintain that political pressure was not a factor in the decision to part ways. The companies say that the primary point of contention was not ideology but money: the financial terms of the deal were not appealing to Fox, which also feared the project would not do well in overseas markets.
