Obama White House workplace comedy in works

Universal Pictures has optioned a book by a White House stenographer for a workplace comedy about working in the Obama White House.

The book, From the Corner of the Oval, was proposed by Beck Dorey-Stein, a former White House stenographer, who has already received a seven-figure book deal from Random House Publishing Group division Spiegel & Grau. The book is expected to come out in 2018.

— Trump’s approval rating takes plunge, lower than Obama’s — 

Rather than looking into the specifics and inner workings of the Obama White House, this story focuses on the interpersonal relationships there. The book itself follows a young woman who manages to get a job as a White House stenographer after an all-time career low and finds herself suddenly thrust into an elite world that she was not quite prepared for.

Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar, who produced the Oscar-winning drama Spotlight, is set to produce.
