Sunday, July 15 at 9 p.m. on Bravo!

In the series premiere, President Paul Garcetti (Adrian Pasdar, HEROES), who defeated former First Lady Elaine Barrish (Sigourney Weaver) in the presidential primary, appoints her as his Secretary of State. A smart man who uses every resource at his disposal to his advantage, he deftly employs Elaine’s popularity to deflect unwanted attention. Elaine tries to keep her family together while simultaneously dealing with crises of the State Department and a hungry D.C. journalist (Carla Gugino, ENTOURAGE) who is bent on destroying her. The project also stars legendary Oscar winner Ellen Burstyn, as well as James Wolk (SHAMELESS), Sebastian Stan (GOSSIP GIRL), Brittany Ishibashi (THE MENTALIST) and Ciar�n Hinds (TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY). Oscar winner Vanessa Redgrave guest stars.
