Sigourney Weaver is set to star in USA Network’s new limited series “Political Animals” which will debut this Summer reports TV Line.
Greg Berlanti (“Dirty Sexy Money”) and Laurence Mark (“Jerry Maguire”) are producing the series about a divorced former First Lady (Weaver) who immerses herself in her new job as Secretary of State – rebounding from the dissolution of her marriage and losing the presidential nomination.

Brittany Ishibashi also stars as Doug’s wife. Still to be cast are said twin brother, her philandering ex-husband, and an aggressive journalist bent on destroying her.
