It's "Lights... Camera... Action" for Michelle Obama. The wife of the US president is used to being in front on the cameras and will soon be seen on the hit talent show The Voice as well as the popular navy series NCIS.
But she won't be the only lady from the capital in attendance. Dr Jill Bidden, wife of Vice President Joe Bidden, will join Michelle on the sets of the singing competition. According to Variety, the two women will appear on the show to celebrate the fifth anniversary of their Joining Forces initiative, which they started in 2011 to help veterans, service members and military families get help they might require in terms of employment, education and health.
Jill and Michelle will appear together on The Voice on 2 May and will join the judges along with host Carson Daly. In keeping with the Joining Forces initiative, the audience will be made up of active duty and retired service members and military families.
On 3 May, the First Lady will play a role in the navy-centric series NCIS and Variety pointed out that this will be the first time that Michelle will allow a non-news TV programme into the White House. On the show, she will be meeting with Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and the wife of a Marine for a Joining Forces round table.
Alongside their TV appearances, the two ladies will also make visits to military bases to mark the anniversary. On 8 May the duo will attend the Opening Ceremonies of the 2016 Invictus Games at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida.
This will not be Michelle's first time on a non-news TV show. She has guest-starred in a number of shows including Parks and Recreation, Nashville and Shark Tank. Jill and Joe Biden made a cameo in the Parks series finale.
