Former Minnesota Democratic Senator Al Franken is set to return to the spotlight in a new Netflix comedy series called “The Residence,” produced by Shonda Rhimes.

This marks a surprising pivot for Franken, who resigned from the Senate in 2017 following sexual misconduct allegations.

The series aims to blend humor with a murder mystery set in the White House, with Franken playing the role of a senior senator.

The show’s debut is anticipated no earlier than 2025.

Franken’s career initially began in entertainment, including writing for “Saturday Night Live” and winning Emmy Awards for his work.

He later transitioned to politics, serving as a Senator until his resignation amidst allegations of sexual misconduct.

His resignation was part of a broader movement in the United States spurred by the #MeToo movement.
