11 New Soaps We Can't Wait to Lather Up With!
No. 9: Political Animals, USA
From TV wunderkind Greg Berlanti (Everwood, Brothers & Sisters) comes this political soap, starring the big screen’s most famous Alien slayer Sigourney Weaver. Former First Lady and current Secretary of State Elaine Barrish (Weaver) is aggressive, ambitious and strong-willed, yet she's still having to contend with her philandering ex-husband/former POTUS Bud Hammond (Ciarán Hinds). I wonder if the working title for this sx-episode, USA series was Untitled Bill and Hilary Project? Political Animals debuts at 10 pm EST, July 15 on USA.
