You know we love a good television show. Binge watching, streaming, whatever it takes to get quality television in our lives.
You also know that we love Ben Platt. That man is so talented, there aren’t enough words to describe our love for him.
Enter, The Politician. The cast includes Platt, as well as Jessica Lange, Zoey Deutch, Lucy Boynton, Laura Dreyfuss, Rahne Jones, Theo Germaine, Julia Schlaepfer, Bob Balaban, Dylan McDermott, January Jones, David Corenswet, Judith Light and Bette Midler.
Amazing cast, right?
The show, which will be on Netflix, is about, “Payton Hobart (Platt), a wealthy student from Santa Barbara, California, who has known since age seven that he’s going to be President of the United States. But first he’ll have to navigate the most treacherous political landscape of all: Saint Sebastian High School. To get elected Student Body President, secure a spot at Harvard, and stay on his singular path to success, Payton will have to outsmart his ruthless classmates without sacrificing his own morality and carefully crafted image.”
Sounds fantastic, right?
The streaming service released some pictures from the series and we’re even more intrigued.
The 8 part series hits Netflix next month.
