When we talk about political TV series and dramas we inevitably mention "West Wing". There is no way around it. In 1999, Aaron Sorkin would create the most prominent political TV series of its time and is still today very much talked about. Here we go deep into the going-on inside the West Wing of the White House and build personal relationships with the staff.
Helming the role of Democratic President is veteran actor, Martin Sheen, as Josiah "Jed" Bartlet, is in his first year of the presidency when the series begins. Bartlet and his staff of advisers feel powerless as they are concerned with re-election and not action and governing. However, Secretary of Labor McGarry convinces Bartlet to pursue reform and legislation. No matter how unlikely, the President and his team are ready to fight any battle on matters they see as important.
Watching the long tracking-shots of walk-and-talks, meetings in the Oval Office, and hot-headed politicians is everything you can ask for as a politics junkie. Deal making and making tough decisions are every day matters for the characters in Sorkin's "West Wing", the writer who is now your best dealer.
While you are still comfortable within the walls of the White House, why not stay, and meet 'Veep' Selina Meyer. "Veep" stars the amazing comedy actress Julia-Louis Dreyfus as the Vice President in the HBO political comedy. In the same vein as "West Wing", we follow her political life in the White House as she manages her life as a VP with her team of advisers and as a mother. Her goal for her term as Vice President is to create a legacy but is usually cut-short due to various mishaps and misunderstandings.
Meyer's team of advisers is quite a mix of goofy and unique characters. Her personal aide Gary Walsh is seen in basically every scene she is in, carrying her tissues and preferred tea in his bag and knows everything about everyone she meets. Walsh is played by Tony Hale which has left his mark in the comedy world by playing the cult character of Buster Bluth in "Arrested Development".
Meyer's Chief of Staff is played by Anna Chlumksy in her big, break-through role of Amy Brookheimer. In the years "Veep" was on the air, she received six Emmy nominations for Supporting Actress. The TV series itself, however, has received a total of 17 Emmy's.
For some, it is tiresome to keep seeing the White House and might prefer a complete change of scenery. How about the Vatican? Jude Law plays a very radical Pope in HBO's "The Young Pope". How often do you see the Pope smoking in his super-secret Vatican office? Not often, I imagine. Want more of a big city vibe? The family drama "Succession" combines an enormous family business with a lot of shady meetings and corrupt businessmen with an equally dysfunctional family. Private jets, helicopters, the biggest yachts you've ever seen, power plays and humiliation, it all happens here in New York City at the multi-billion media and entertainment conglomerate 'Waystar Royco'.
