Plot Synopsis

Based on Philip Roth's 2004 novel of the same name, THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA is a six-part limited series that imagines an alternate American history, as told through the eyes of a working-class Jewish family in New Jersey as they watch the political rise of aviator-hero and xenophobic populist Charles Lindbergh, who becomes president and turns the nation toward fascism. David Simon and Ed Burns are writers and executive producers of this series, which premieres on Monday, March 16, 2020 at 9pm ET/PT on HBO. Episodes include:

Part 1 (Monday, March 16, 2020 at 9pm ET/PT): Herman Levin, anticipating a promotion at work, takes his family to look at a house in an upwardly mobile neighborhood, though Bess is wary of leaving the safety of their tight-knit Jewish community and raising a family amid growing anti-Semitism sparked by Lindbergh's ascendancy. As the family spinster, her sister Evelyn has a disappointing rendezvous with a married lover, but later, finds herself charmed by a distinguished local clergyman, Rabbi Lionel Bengelsdorf. Meanwhile, getting an earful from Herman for being fired from his job, his orphaned nephew, Alvin Levin seeks retaliation for an aggrieved friend.
