Huffman Becomes A Politician’s Wife

Felicity Huffman will headline Picturehouse’s adaptation of British miniseries “The Politician’s Wife”.

The 1995 Channel 4 mini concerned an MP’s wife who responds to her husband’s infidelity in unexpected ways. Nicholas Meyer did the adaptation, a script brimming with intrigue and sexual politics.

Variety reports that filming is set to begin in May, when Huffman is on hiatus from “Desperate Housewives”.
