Political Animals

The highly anticipated six-hour event series about a former first family fighting political adversaries while struggling with their own powerful demons anchors the network's blockbuster summer lineup of originals across five nights a week. From Warner Horizon Television and acclaimed television and film producers Greg Berlanti and Laurence Mark, the event drama has added Adrian Pasdar in a recurring role opposite Sigourney Weaver in her first television series regular role. Pasdar stars as President Paul Garcetti, who defeated Elaine in the presidential primary and then appointed her as his Secretary of State. A smart man who uses every resource at his disposal to his advantage, he deftly employs Elaine's popularity to deflect unwanted attention. Elaine tries to keep her family together while simultaneously dealing with crises of the State Department and a hungry DC journalist who is bent on destroying her. POLITICAL ANIMALS explores the nuanced and complex world of politics through the lens of a family who has experienced its highs and lows. The project also stars Carla Gugino, James Wolk, Sebastian Stan Brittany Ishibashi with Ellen Burstyn and Ciarán Hinds.
