What is the series about?

It’s the story of the rise and fall of a political dynasty. In the 1970s, Watergate shook President Nixon to his core. He knew he would never be re-elected, but he still had to deal with a criminal investigation of his administration’s most egregious crimes—from wiretapping his political enemies to the cover-up that followed. And amid all this chaos, Nixon was haunted by a shadow from his past: E. Howard Hunt, who was tasked with investigating Watergate and was deeply involved in some of its darkest moments. Now, with the help of Dr. Joyce Barnhardt (Lena Headey), E. Howard Hunt will desperately try to keep his past a secret as he and his fellow plumbers conspire to save Richard Nixon’s presidency. But with each passing day, it becomes increasingly clear that the men’s intentions are based on idealism and little else. Because as the Watergate scandal rumbles forward, the men soon find themselves on a collision course with history.

Why should you watch this series?

Exactly what the title says, this story is one of the most politically turbulent times in history. The constant political drama that was unfolding around Richard Nixon also impacted other actors as well. This series is a very interesting new concept on the grounds of both drama and history. Adding a new perspective to the political drama that was going down in the White House during Nixon’s time as President. History often only tells us one side of the story and this series is taking things a step further by giving us an inside look at all of the dirty work that went into both keeping Nixon in power as well as getting rid of him in power. Another one on whom this show focuses is E. Howard Hunt, a former CIA agent who was involved with Nixon’s infamous ‘plumbers’ unit, was chosen by Nixon himself to spy on the Watergate break-in and cover it up.

Who can watch this series?

Anyone can watch this show, it is rated TV-MA and will air on HBO. This is a political drama that will interest anyone who enjoys dramatic historical content that is told from a point of view different from the usual one. It focuses not only on the political side of things but also on the CIA aspect as well. This isn’t just some mediocre drama; this series has historical accuracy to it as well as an interesting storyline, a surprisingly engaging combination. This series looks like it could be great and I think many people are going to find themselves thoroughly entertained by it.
