Series where the president is represented are very successful in the United States. In the State where freedom of speech is the first amendment, movie makers enjoy creating fiction with the role of the president.
They imagine a political life at the border between reality and fiction, they freely criticize the administration policy denouncing, for example, the Iraq war. The ?what if? representations in the series meet a great audience with 24 or West Wing, for example, and are mostly linked with the news. In spite of the under representation of minorities in movies, filmmakers stage a black president or a women president. They are willing to build a certain idea of presidency in the population consciousness. They break prejudices against the minorities, such as Black Americans, Hispanics and Women. The series aimed at changing the habits of people, who are used to see White men at the head of the administration.

After watching several episodes from 24, West Wing and Commander in Chief, it comes out that the representation of presidency and American policies related with war and terrorism are two relevant themes to analyze.
