Wendy Davis’ political career has been so successful, NBC would be foolish not to capitalize on it, right?

Yeah, this‘ll end well.

Alas, no. Apparently, this is not a joke:

Written by Jennifer Cecil, the untitled project centers on a female Democratic senator who, after losing the Texas governor’s race, gets her world turned upside down. In the vein ofThe Good Wife, while she pieces her pride back together, she goes to work in the law firm of her best friend — a black male Republican — and discovers that with no political future to protect, she can unshackle her inner badass.

Well, not an intentional joke, at least …


Neither can we!
