WASHINGTON (AP) - The Republican National Committee wants NBC and CNN to cancel upcoming programs on Hillary Rodham Clinton and is threatening to blackball the networks from future Republican presidential debates if they fail to comply.

RNC chairman Reince Priebus calls the programs political ads "masquerading" as unbiased productions. He vows not to partner with the networks on GOP debates if they don't pull the programs.

Clinton has not yet said whether she'll run for president again in 2016.

CNN Films is planning a feature-length film on the former first lady and secretary of state for next year.

NBC has announced a miniseries "Hillary" starring Diane Lane. It's expected to be released before the 2016 presidential election.

NBC Entertainment declined comment on the RNC request. CNN did not immediately comment.
