Seth McGuire (Patrick J Adams) is a first term Congressman. He’s also an unflinching idealist and a profound optimist.
When embroiled in his first ever controversy, Seth is completely ill-equipped to navigate D.C.’s political treachery. Hope comes in a EUREKA moment, putting him at a crossroads: can his bold and revolutionary plan really save this country, or is he going to talk himself right out of office when people hear his crazy idea?
Starring Patrick J Adams, Kate Walsh, Shanola Hampton, Ming-Na Wen, Spencer Garrett, Jack Coleman, Autumn Reeser, and Laurence Fishburne. Created by J S Mayank and David Carlyle.
