“Your ambition frightens me.” Netflix just released a first look at their new TV show from Ryan Murphy, The Politician.
The drama series stars Ben Platt as Payton Hobart, “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.” The cast also includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Zoey Deutch, Jessica Lange, Lucy Boynton, Bob Balaban, David Corenswet, Julia Schlaepfer, Laura Dreyfuss, Theo Germaine, Rahne Jones, and Benjamin Barrett.
The Politician debuts on Netflix on September 27th.

What do you think? Are you a fan of Ryan Murphy’s work? Will you watch The Politician?
No thanks. There’s nothing amusing about politics these days – can hardly watch anything where some mention of politics or politicians doesn’t crop up. Certainly don’t want to tune into any more of that BS – meant to be funny or not.
