Plot Synopsis

Rich kid Payton Hobart has always known he's going to be president. But first he has to navigate the most treacherous political landscape of all: high school. So sfter a charismatic candidate joins the race for student body president, Payton searches for a running mate who will make him seem more authentic. Amid escalating concerns about his vice presidential pick, Payton gets plunged into a family crisis that stokes long-seething resentments. While Payton plays hardball with Harvard admissions, shocking betrayals and a scandalous videotape take the election to a new level of ruthlessness. With the election just days away, Payton faces tough questions about just how far he's willing to go to defeat his opponent, and then he makes an eleventh-hour push to lock down the school's undecided voters, including one student who has other things on his mind besides politics. As Payton confronts hard truths about his ambition following an election day bombshell, he reconnects with a former ally -- and becomes a target. Netflix released eight episodes of THE POLITICIAN on Friday, September 27, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT.
