Political Animals – Season 2012

Get More:

Elaine Barrish(played by Sigourney Weaver)Political Animals opens with a defining moment in Elaine's run for the White House, which came on the heels of husband Bud's popular yet ultimately sullied term as POTUS. The action then jumps to the present, where Elaine serves as Secretary of State to President Garcetti, with whom she will at times cross swords. "The Oval Office is in some ways the adversary here, even though they're the same political party," says series creator Greg Berlanti. "It's not Democrats versus Republicans, it's Democrats versus themselves." But first and foremost, Elaine will have to contend with a volatile crisis in the Middle East while trying to keep a lid on son TJ's dark past and eluding the prying gaze of journalist Susan Berg.
