Payton Hobart (Ben Platt), a wealthy student from Santa Barbara, California, 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. To get elected Student Body President, secure a spot at Harvard, and stay on his singular path to success, Payton will have to outsmart his ruthless classmates without sacrificing his own morality and carefully crafted image. Full of comedy and sly satire, Ryan Murphy's "The Politician" offers a rare glimpse into just what it takes to make a politician. It also stars Jessica Lange, Gwyneth Paltrow, Zoey Deutsch, Lucy Boynton, Theo Germaine, Julia Schlaepfer, and Laura Dreyfuss.
"The Politician" premieres globally on Netflix on September 27th, 2019.
