Synopsis

Political Animals is USA Network's limited series event that pulls back the curtain on the polished facade of a former first-family as they navigate the complex world of political and personal ambition.

Sigourney Weaver stars as former first lady and current Secretary of State Elaine Barrish Hammond who is attempting to keep her family together while simultaneously dealing with crises of the State Department and fending off the hungry DC journalist (Carla Gugino) who is bent on destroying her career.

Exploring themes that resonate in the current political landscape and taking viewers beyond the glossy ads and well-written public speeches, Political Animals reveals a vulnerable family on the verge of falling apart.

From Warner Horizon Television and acclaimed television and film producers Greg Berlanti (Brothers & Sisters) and Laurence Mark (Julie and Julia), Political Animals also stars James Wolk (Shameless), Sebastian Stan (Gossip Girl), Ellen Burstyn (Requiem for a Dream), Ciaran Hinds (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) and Brittany Ishibashi (The Mentalist).
