Actress from I’ll Fly Away, The Unit and Lovecraft Country Portrays Source of FLOTUS's Strength in the SHOWTIME Anthology Drama Series


New York - Regina Taylor, two-time NAACP Image Award winning actress, playwright and activist, shines in role of Marian Shields Robinson, Michelle Obama’s mother, in the new series THE FIRST LADY, which airs on SHOWTIME Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.  

The anthology drama stars Oscar®, Emmy® and Tony winner Viola Davis (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom), as former first lady Michelle Obama, Oscar and Emmy nominee Michelle Pfeiffer (French Exit) as Betty Ford and Emmy and Screen Actors Guild winner Gillian Anderson (The Crown) as Eleanor Roosevelt. 
Michelle Obama has always credited her mother as being an inspirational role model,” Taylor said. “Her mother and father were absolute pillars of strength, encouraging her to pursue her dreams, let no one deter her and to not get in her own way. It was crucial for Michelle Obama, as the first Black woman in the White House, to bring along her essential source of strength – her mother, Marian Robinson.”
