Hillary and Chelsea Clinton join forces to produce a documentary about women who fought against the Islamic state in Syria

Hillary and Chelsea Clinton are about to produce a television show about a group of all-female Kurdish militia women who fought the EI in 2014, after acquiring the rights to a forthcoming book about extraordinary and courageous women.

 

The mother-daughter duo wants to follow in the footsteps of Barack and Michelle Obama who launched their own production company, HiddenLight Productions, which they co-founded with Sam Branson - the son of Virgin founder Richard Branson.

 

Having already signed an agreement with Apple TV+ for a documentary series based on their own book The Book of Gutsy Women, Hillary, 73, and Chelsea, 40, have now set their sights on the lucrative world of scripted television with a show based on bestselling author Gayle Tzemach Lemmon's upcoming book, The Daughters of Kobani: A Story of Rebellion, Courage, and Justice.

 

The book, to be published on February 16, focuses on a group of all-female combatants, known as women's protection units, who helped combat IE in the small town of Kobani in northeastern Syria.

 

Women's Protection Units were first formed by a group of a few hundred Kurdish women in 2013 in order to respond to the EI forces that were sweeping the country and taking control of vast tracts of territory.

 

Lemmon's book focuses on just four of these women, who took part in the Battle of Kobani in 2014, detailing how they and their comrades helped retake the city from EI fighters, with the help of U.S. intelligence and air strikes.
