Hillary Clinton and daughter Chelsea creating Kurdish militia TV series
Using their own production company, HiddenLight Productions, the pair acquired TV rights to author Gayle Tzemach Lemmon's The Daughters of Kobani: A Story of Rebellion, Courage, and Justice.
It is based on hundreds of hours of interviews and on-the-ground reporting with the all-female Kurdish militia unit, which fought the Islamic State group in northern Syria.
"The Daughters of Kobani is an extraordinary account of brave, defiant women fighting for justice and equality," said former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hilary Clinton.
"We created HiddenLight to celebrate heroes - sung and unsung alike - whose courage is too often overlooked, and we could not be more thrilled to bring this inspiring story to viewers around the world."
Women have played a key role in Syrian Kurdish militias since as early as 2011 and during their fight-back against IS from 2014, garnering huge attention from international media.
A broadcasting network is not yet attached to the deal.
