Political Animals, 10 p.m., USA
Hillary Clinton, anyone? In this mini-series, Sigourney Weaver plays a Hillary Clinton-esque character. The previews look good – it is a stellar cast – but how much of a ‘been there, done that’ feeling is too much? Here is the synopsis: “This drama … explores the complex world of politics through a former first family that has experienced its highs and lows and is fighting political adversaries while struggling with the family members' own personal demons. Weaver stars as Elaine Barrish, who is appointed Secretary of State by President Paul Garcetti after losing to him in the presidential primary. While dealing with the usual crises of the State Department, Barrish also must try to keep her family together and fend off a hungry journalist who wants to destroy her political career.” The journalist is played by one of my favorites, Carla Gugino, so I will check it out.
