Payton Hobart, 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 dark comedy and sly satire, Ryan Murphy’s The Politician offers a rare glimpse into just what it takes to make a politician.

The Politician stars Tony Award winner Ben Platt (Dear Evan Hanson), Gwyneth Paltrow (Avengers: Infinity War),  Zoey Deutch (Set It Up), Lucy Boynton (Murder on the Orient Express), David Corenswet (Affairs of State), Julia Schlaepfer (Charlie Says), Theo Germaine (Artificial Intelligence), Laura Dreyfuss (Glee), and Rahne Jones (Godspell) as series regulars. Bette Midler and Judith Light will also return for the second season.

The series was given a two-season straight-to-series order. In addition to creating the series, Murphy also co-wrote the episodes alongside Ian Brennan (Glee co-creator) and Brad Falchuk (American Horror StoryFeud).

The Politician is one of Ryan Murphy’s ongoing projects for Netflix as part of his massive multi-year deal with the streaming service. These projects include Ratched, a prequel to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest starring Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story) as a younger version of the cruel Nurse Ratched; and the film adaptation of hit Broadway musical The Prom featuring a star-studded cast led by Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman; and five different projects that were recently announced.
