The Most Anticipated TV of 2019


“The Politician”
Before Ryan Murphy signed his unprecedented $300 million, five-year Netflix deal, there was a bidding war among the streamers for his new political anthology series. It ultimately landed at Netflix, and he subsequently signed that deal. Casting rumors for the show that centers on a young politician (Ben Platt), with each new season following him during a different race, have kept the buzz big for the show. While at one point Barbra Streisand was considering a role, ultimately that one went to long-time Murphy muse Jessica Lange. The rest of the cast rounds out so far as Dylan McDermott, January Jones and Zoey Deutsch.
