Show Summary
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 ("Brothers & Sisters") and Laurence Mark ("Julie and Julia"), the event drama has added Adrian Pasdar ("Heroes," "The Lying Game," "Desperate Housewives") in a recurring role opposite Sigourney Weaver ("Avatar") in her first television series regular role. Pasdar stars as President Paul Garcetti, who defeated Elaine (Weaver) 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 (Gugino) 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.
