The new Showtime series was produced in cooperation with Bloomberg Politics and featuring Bloomberg Politics managing editors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann (co-authors of the New York Times best-sellers Game Change and Double Down, and co-hosts of the nightly political show “With All Due Respect” on Bloomberg Television) and noted campaign strategist and media advisor Mark McKinnon.The real-time documentary series attempts to "pull back the curtain"on the 2016 presidential race, revealing the intense, irreverent, inspiring and infuriating stories behind the headlines of what promises to be one of the most fascinating and consequential elections in modern history.
Poignantly The series premiered in January 2016, in advance of the Iowa caucuses. The most fascinating draw to the series is that the producers deliver the stories as they are happening and examine what really goes on behind the carefully constructed facade of a presidential campaign in real time. THE CIRCUS follows multiple individual stories and key characters from the campaigns and capture their unique perspectives in weekly half-hour shows until November. With intimate, behind-the-scenes access, cameras will offer viewers a look at what the public rarely sees and explore the high human drama inherent in the pursuit of the Oval Office.
