Netflix released the first footage from “The Politician”, the new 8-episode comedy series, created by Ryan Murphy. “The Politician” launches on September 27 exclusively on Netflix.
Payton Hobart (Ben Platt), a wealthy student from Santa Barbara, California, knew from the age of seven that he would become the president of the United States. But before this step, you will have to go through the most complicated political environment of all: Saint Sebastian High School. To be elected President of the Student Council, get a place at Harvard and stay on the path to success, Payton has to defeat his high school opponents without sacrificing his morality and sharp image. Full of comedy and fine satire, Ryan Murphy’s “The Politician” offers a rare glimpse into what it means to be a politician.
The cast includes Ben Platt, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Lange, Zoey Deutch, Lucy Boynton, Laura Dreyfuss, Rahne Jones, Theo Germaine, Julia Schlaepfer and Bob Balaban. They are joined by Dylan McDermott, January Jones, David Corenswet, Judith Light and Bette Midler.
