Former President Richard Graves has the epiphany, twenty years after leaving office, that his policies have damaged the country for decades. This, as his wife, the former First Lady, has political ambitions of her own.
Not typically mentioned in the same breath as HBO or Showtime, but EPIX has produced some impressive originals including Get Shorty, Godfather of Harlem, and the surprisingly good Pennyworth.
These grounded political TV dramas follow the day-to-day work of politicians as they serve the public, or more often serve themselves. Think more 'House of Cards', less '24'.
Everyone has their 15 minutes of fame, and some spend the rest of their lives trying to get it back; these has-beens make persistence look sometimes inspiring, sometimes pathetic.
In theory, people should mellow with age, but not the stars of these comedies who have become more cynical and misanthropic with the passing of time.
How do you produce a political comedy show when every day an event occurs 10 times more absurd than your latest episode? Pity the poor show-runners in this list of Veep-esque sitcoms.
