HBO FILMS TO CHRONICLE THE EXTRAORDINARY EVENTS OF THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IN A MINISERIES TO BE BASED ON THE UPCOMING BOOK BY MARK HALPERIN AND JOHN HEILEMANN, FROM THE PRODUCERS AND DIRECTOR OF HBO'S EMMY(R)-WINNING FILM "GAME CHANGE"

Miniseries To Be Executive Produced By Tom Hanks And Gary Goetzman, Directed And Executive Produced By Jay Roach, And Based On The Third Installment Of The "Game Change" Series Of Campaign Books By New York Times Bestselling Co-Authors Mark Halperin And John Heilemann

NEW YORK, March 9, 2017 - HBO has announced plans for a miniseries that tells the story of Donald Trump's dramatic, improbable victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, and has enlisted Jay Roach to direct and executive produce and Playtone's Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman as executive producers. The miniseries will be based on Mark Halperin and John Heilemann's upcoming third installment of the "Game Change" series, which will be published by Penguin Press, an imprint of Penguin Random House (PRH), and cover the most stunning political upset of all time.

Based on the 2010 New York Times No. 1 bestseller by Halperin and Heilemann, HBO Films' "Game Change" was executive produced by Goetzman and Hanks, directed and executive produced by Roach, and starred Julianne Moore, Woody Harrelson and Ed Harris. Debuting in 2012 on HBO, it went on to win five Emmy(R) Awards, including Outstanding Miniseries or Movie, three Golden Globes, including Best Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television, and a Peabody Award.

Halperin and Heilemann's book "Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime" was widely hailed as the definitive account of the historic 2008 presidential election, and was followed four years later by the New York Times bestselling sequel "Double Down: Game Change 2012."

Len Amato, president, HBO Films, says, "We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, whose work on their bestselling book 'Game Change' set the bar for political reporting and storytelling inside a presidential campaign. Reuniting 'Game Change' director and executive producer Jay Roach and Playtone producers Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman with Mark and John for a project based on their upcoming book promises to vividly capture the most unique and impactful event in modern American politics."
