About Political Animals:
A divorced, former First Lady is currently serving as the Secretary of State. She deals with State Department issues while trying to keep her family together
Set in Washington, D.C., POLITICAL ANIMALS is a bold, significant look at a fictional former first family in turmoil. Academy Award®and Emmy®nominee -- and Golden Globe and BAFTA winner -- Sigourney Weaver stars as Elaine Barrish Hammond, a former first lady and current secretary of state struggling to keep her family together while dealing with the current crises of the State Department and fending off the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist (Carla Gugino) who has built her career by tearing Elaine down.
The provocative one-hour drama series will tap into the behind-the-scenes dynamics of a high-profile political dynasty, the dark -- yet real -- human side of life and the often-disastrous effects of political ambition.
Exploring themes that resonate in the current political landscape and taking viewers beyond the glossy ads and well-written public speeches, POLITICAL ANIMALS will reveal a vulnerable family on the verge of falling apart.
