The Hollywood Reporter reported that Bates will essay the first female presidential candidate, while Cena, joint lead with Turner-Smith, plays an independent presidential candidate.

Ryan Cunningham of Anonymous Content and Emmy-winning producers Sam Bisbee of Park Pictures and Thea Dunlap are set to produce alongside Caddy Vanasirikul of The Exchange and Parter. Lance Acord and Jackie Kelman Bisbee of Park Pictures and Brian O`Shea and Nat McCormick of The Exchange are serving as executive producers.

Cena has had a busy summer with the releases of `F9: The Fast Saga`, `The Suicide Squad` and Hulu`s `Vacation Friends`. He will next be seen reprising his `Suicide Squad` role in the upcoming HBO Max series `Peacemaker`, followed by Matthew Vaughn`s all-star spy thriller `Argylle`.

Meanwhile, Bates, recently seen in Warner Brother`s Richard `Jewell`, will next appear in Lionsgate`s feature adaption of Judy Blume`s classic novel, `Are You There God? It`s Me, Margaret`. She will also star in Thaddeus O`Sullivan`s film, `The Miracle Club`.
