They’ve conquered Broadway together in Dear Evan Hansen, and now Ben Platt and Laura Dreyfuss are heading to the small screen for Ryan Murphy’s The Politician.
Both actors will appear as series regulars alongside Zoey Deutch, Lucy Boynton, Rahne Jones and a rumoured Barbra Streisand and Gwyneth Paltrow. Dreyfuss previously starred in season six of Glee.
Like the musical drama, The Poltician is combining the talents Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, debuting on Netflix but part of the Murphy’s overall FOX deal.
Further details are being kept under wraps, but we do know that the show will follow Platt’s character as he pursues his political aspirations. As is Murphy’s pattern, every season could be psuedo-anthology with a new race every season.
