Former President Bill Clinton’s first novel, which won’t be published until June 2018, is set to become a regular television series on Showtime, Entertainment Weekly is reporting.

Clinton and best-selling author James Patterson are currently writing the dramatic thriller, The President Is Missing. The novel will focus on the mysterious disappearance of a U.S. president.

The project had been sought after by various networks and studios, according to Entertainment Weekly. CBS chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves, who is friends with both Clinton and Patterson, helped cut the deal, EW reported.

USA Today reported CBS is the parent company of the cable channel network.

"Bringing ‘The President Is Missing to Showtime is a coup of the highest order," said Showtime president and CEO David Nevins. "The pairing of President Clinton with fiction’s most gripping storyteller promises a kinetic experience, one that the book world has salivated over for months and that now will dovetail perfectly into a politically relevant, character-based action series for our network."

"I’m really enjoying writing this book and working with Jim," Clinton said in a statement. "And I can’t wait to see Showtime bring the characters to life."
