'The Politician' Trailer: Ryan Murphy Netflix Comedy, Ben Platt Stars

If you're behind on the news of Murphy's many television projects in development, The Politician is his new series focusing on Payton Hobart (Tony victor Ben Platt), who has known since he was a kid that he would become President of the United States.

Ben Platt plays Payton Hobart, a wealthy Santa Barbara high school student whose goal is to be president of the United States. Also starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Zoey Deutch, "Bohemian Rhapsody" breakout Lucy Boynton and Murphy favorite Jessica Lange, the much-anticipated project is the first to come out of the super-producer's $300-million multiyear deal with Netflix.

Ezekiel Elliott didn’t find Jerry Jones’ ‘Zeke who?’ quip all that amusing
There are at least two people who didn't find Jerry Jones' joke about Ezekiel Elliott amusing on Saturday night. Jones made the joke Saturday after the Cowboys' preseason victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Hawaii.

The series doesn't debut on Netflix until September 27, but the streaming service has released the first preview-and like most of Murphy's projects, it looks super insane, juicy, and gay. But first he'll have to navigate the most treacherous political landscape of all: Saint Sebastian High School. "Full of dark comedy and sly satire, Ryan Murphy's The Politician offers a rare glimpse into just what it takes to make a politician". Another person added: "You should know by now guys".

The series features Ben Platt, star of the Broadway hit "Dear Evan Hansen", as a preppy star pupil on a mission to land the coveted position of student body president.
