Politics & Pop Culture from a homocon.

New TV show: Political Animals

Earlier this week, a dear friend of mine invited me to a private pre-screening she was hosting of the USA Network’s new series, Political Animals, staring Sigourney Weaver as a former presidential candidate & current Secretary of State.  Let me just say that Ms. Weaver looks absolutely AMAZING!

The short run series (I guess this is the new term for mini-series) premiere this Sunday (July 15).  The show navigates the worlds of politics & family – & women’s roles within them.  Let’s see how long it takes you to place the Sigourney’s character with a real-life person.

It’s pretty good.  I am actually looking forward to watching it again this weekend and tuning in each week.

From the press release…

USA Network, the #1 cable network, is set to launch a new limited series, Political Animals, which focuses on a former First Family & what happens as they continue to navigate the fast-moving political waters of Washington, DC & their complicated personal lives. While completely fictional, the series explores very real issues pertaining to women’s leadership & difficult balancing acts women in power often face: career & family, public & private, integrity & ambition.

From the acclaimed TV & film producers Greg Berlanti (Brothers & Sisters, Jack & Bobby) & Laurence Mark (Working Girl, Jerry Maguire, Dreamgirls, Julie & Julia), the provocative series (six episodes) will tap into the behind-the-scenes dynamics of a high profile political dynasty & all of the traps & trappings that come with the long & bright spotlight.
