Netflix is working on The Girls on the Bus, a new series inspired by a chapter of reporter Amy Chozick's 2018 book, Chasing Hillary.

The show is about "four female journalists who follow the every move of a parade of flawed presidential candidates, finding friendship, love, and a scandal that could take down not just the presidency but our entire democracy along the way," a press release said.

No casting has been announced yet.

Writing and producing the project are author Chozick and Julie Plec — whose credits include The Vampire Diaries; The Originals; Legacies; and Roswell, New Mexico.

The streamer's growing library is giving viewers plenty of reasons to make a switch.

Greg Berlanti — who is known for his work on Political Animals; the Arrow-verse shows; and Everwood — is producing the show.

"Been cooking this one up all summer. So excited it found a home. @amychozick is an absolute writer-star and @GBerlanti and @SarahSoWitty are no slouches either," Plec tweeted.
