The first child of Netflix and Ryan Murphy’s union is due September 27. With a little less than a month before its birth, we receive the first trailer to this topical satire of politics viewed through a run for class president. The Politician looks to mix elements of 90s Election, with Ryan’s own line of lethal camp. Joining the relatively fresh faced Ben Platt are Jessica Lange and Gwyneth Paltrow.
On first glance, I’m not really moved. Lange is always a safe pitch, but there isn’t anything else drawing me. However I guess we felt the same way with the first American Horror Story (you did catch Dylan McDermott right?). And as much as this looks set in present time, everything gave me 1980s Hollywood. From the mostly white cast to the exquisitely clean and vibrant color scheme. Can’t say I endorse this message, but i’m sure I’ll check it out.
