If you’re looking for something substance to watch this summer (the oppositie of the ‘Big Brother‘ guilty pleasure), then this six-part limited series on USA’s called ‘Political Animals‘ might just be for you.
Here’s what it’s about: Divorced former First Lady Elaine Barrish (Sigourney Weaver) is currently serving as the Secretary of State. She finds an unlikely ally in a D.C. journalist (Carla Gugino) who had previously dedicated herself to tearing Barrish to pieces. It’s about American politics and family politics and all of the stuff that goes on behind the scenes. It looks very interesting. There’s even a gay storyline as well!
Some of the other noteable cast include Ellen Burstyn (who I LOVED in Requiem For A Dream), Ciaran Hinds, James Wolk, Sebastian Stan (the hottie from Gossip Girl) and Brittany Ishibash. Political Animals premieres July 15 at 10/9c on USA. Check out the trailer/preview below!
