Cast: Sigourney Weaver, Carla Gugino, James Wolk
Set in Washington, Sigourney Weaver stars as Elaine Barrish Hammond, a former first lady and current secretary of state struggling to keep her family together while dealing the crises of the world and fending off the attentions of Susan Berg (Carla Gugino), a journalist who has built her career on tearing Elaine down. The provocative one-hour drama series will tap into the back room dynamics of a high-profile political dynasty, the dark " yet real " human side of life and the often-disastrous effects of political ambition. Exploring themes that resonate in the current political landscape and taking viewers beyond the glossy ads and public speeches, Political Animals will reveal a vulnerable family on the verge of falling apart.
