Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea Clinton are getting into business with Apple.

The duo are set to host and executive produce a docuseries called “Gutsy Women,” which has been handed a straight-to-series order at Apple TV Plus.

Inspired by their book “The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience,” the series will spotlight a diverse cast of trailblazing women. It will see the Clintons set out on a quest to answer the question: what exactly does it take to be a Gutsy Woman?

It represents the latest in a string of projects either involving the former secretary of state or about her.

Clinton is teaming with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television and Warner Bros. TV to develop anthology drama “The Woman’s Hour” at CW, based on the Elaine Weiss book “The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote.” While an alternative history series imagining that Hillary Rodham never married Bill Clinton is in the pipeline at Hulu with Sarah Treem attached to write and exec produce.

She was also the subject of a Hulu documentary series at the beginning of the year.

“Gutsy Women” is being produced for Apple by HiddenLight Productions, the newly-launched shingle founded by the two Clintons and Sam Branson. Johnny Webb and Roma Khanna are also on board as executive producers.

It joins a growing list of docuseries on Apple TV Plus, which already includes “The Oprah Conversation” and Emmy-nominated “Home” and “Dear…”

Secretary Clinton is repped by Robert Barnett and Michael O’Connor at Williams & Connolly LLP and Steven Burkow at Ziffren Brittenham.
