Nixon, Sedaris, Sykes Visit “Alpha House”

Cynthia Nixon (“Sex and the City”), Amy Sedaris (“Strangers with Candy”), Wanda Sykes (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and Julie White (“Go On”) have all joined the cast of the political comedy series “Alpha House” at Amazon Studios.

The four guest star on the series which premieres this Fall exclusively on Amazon’s Instant Video service. The story revolves around four GOP senators-turned-roommates.

Nixon and Sykes play formidable Democratic senators, with the latter the neighbor of the new roommates. Sedaris and White play the wives of two of them (Matt Malloy’s and John Goodman’s spouses respectively).

“Doonesbury” creator Garry Trudeau created the series which was one of five pilots Amazon picked from its first set of fourteen back in April. It is currently filming around Kaufman Astoria Studios in New York.
