There is no time like the present to catch up on the premiere of USA Network’s Sigourney Weaver starrer Political Animals, a perfect mélange of a ripped-from-the-annals-of-recent-history homage to Hillary Clinton and a down and dirty nighttime soap on par with the likes of Revenge. And, if you get on board now for the six-episode ‘limited series event’ from Brothers and Sisters and Dawson’s Creek producer Greg Berlanti, you can win nearly $400 in Political Animals-themed swag.
The show revolves around Weaver’s character Elaine Barrish, the country’s cutthroat Secretary of State, who also happens to be the philandering ex-President’s (Ciarán Hinds) ex-wife. Carla Gugino stars as an ambitious journalist who alternately goes toe to toe with and befriends Elaine while the legendary Ellen Burstyn plays Elaine’s foul-mouthed, martini swilling mom. Plus, Oscar winner Vanessa Redgrave guest stars as a lesbian Supreme Court Justice.
