The winner decides whether to actually run for president that fall.
Should he or she decide to go ahead, the producers will follow the candidate à la "The War Room," and telecast the campaign trail in a weekly series right up until election night.
But, Cutler emphasized, "we won't be running them for office; we won't require them to run for office. We certainly hope they will choose to run."
And how will this made-for-TV candidate finance her campaign? Let us not forget that in the last presidential election, George W. Bush spend about $186 million and Al Gore not much less than that.
"They're going to have to figure that out," Cutler said.
"We're certainly not going to provide them. This show is going to function squarely within whatever finance regulations there are. That's why we are being very careful not to say our goal is to run anybody for office. . . . We know that a television show or a cable channel or a media organization cannot run anyone for office."
