“We promise to you, EVERYTHING“. After American Horror Story and American Crime Story Ryan Murphy dives into the murky world of politics with The Politician.
Netflix has released the Trailer for it’s next upcoming ‘Netflix Originals‘. Promising to deliver the attitude, wit and elitism of such shows as Glee, Cruel Intentions. Glee star Ben Platt leads the show as a wealthy student who has aspirations of becoming student president.
The series promises the dark comedic, satirical tone we expect from Ryan Murphy. Politics is a cutthroat world, full of false promises, shaking a lot of hands. Lots of stabbing peoples backs, fake smiles, ruthless attitudes. The series starts at the bottom with the final season him going for U.S President.
No hidden agenda that a lot of politicians both sides of the Atlantic being wealthy has gotten them far in politics. We do live in a world which Boris Johnson and Donald Trump are leaders. Will be interesting to see the reaction of this series tackling real life issues…
