Having had a front-row seat to the surreal and oddly humorous twists and turns of this presidential cycle, lawyer-turned-political journalist Megyn Kelly is now trying her hand at a side project: Producing a scripted political comedy.

Entertainment news magazine Variety reports that the Fox News anchor — perhaps best known to most Americans as the GOP-primary debate moderator who found herself in a rather one-sided feud with Donald Trump — has teamed up with “Fifty Shades of Grey” producer Michael De Luca to create a show titled “Embeds.”

“The series will follow five young reporters who are in way over their heads as they find themselves shaping the future of the country while experiencing raucous adventures in an unexpected world of sex, drugs, and swing states,” explained Variety. “Big-name politicians are expected to cameo throughout the series.”

So far, Verizon’s Go90 streaming service has committed to six episodes of the program, the first of which, producers hope, will debut before Election Day, reported Variety.

Earlier this year, Ms. Kelly finalized a book deal with Harper Collins. “Settle for More,” which will hit bookstores on Nov. 15, is described by the publishing house as the veteran journalist’s look “behind the scenes of the stories and the storms that have made her one of the most talked about public figures in America.”
