Zoey Deutch, Lucy Boynton, Laura Dreyfuss and Rahne Jones have been cast as series regulars alongside Ben Platt in Ryan Murphy’s new Netflix original series “The Politician”.
Platt plays a wealthy Santa Barbarian with political aspirations, but specifics of the plot are under wraps beyond it sporting musical numbers. Each season focuses on different political races that Platt’s character is involved in.
The series has already received a two-season straight-to-series order and Murphy is set to direct the pilot episode while Barbara Streisand will possibly be directing some of the episodes. Ian Brennan and Brad Falchuck also executive produce.
