White House Plumbers: a promising trailer for the HBO series on Watergate
Justin Theroux and Woody Harrelson star in White House Plumbers, the new HBO series that has just released its first trailer.
< p style="text-align: justify;">Since Alan J. Pakula's The President's Men released in 1976, a film centered on the journalists who uncovered the Watergate scandal, many works have treatise on this major event in the history of American politics. Of course there was Oliver Stone's Nixon in which Anthony Hopkins plays the role of the 37th President of the United States, but also The Secret Man: Mark Felt and Pentagon Papers, in which the scandal is mentioned at the end.
The spy case that led to the resignation of Richard Nixon in 1974 will be the subject of a new HBO series called White House Plumbers. The miniseries created by Alex Gregory and Peter Huyck, who both co-wrote the Veep series, is based on the book Integrity by Egil and Matthew Krogh. White House Plumbers focuses on two very real characters, E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy, who as shown in the first trailer, organized the robbery of the Democratic Party at the Watergate premises.< /p>
The two men tasked with spying on the Democratic Party and who have all screwed up are played by Woody Harrelson and Justin Theroux, who therefore embark again with HBO, after True Detective and The Leftovers, two of the best series of recent years. Sabotage, espionage, all shots are allowed for Nixon's men. With its groovy music, fast pace and impeccable cinematography, the trailer seems to indicate that the series has followed the HBO recipe of which only they hold the secret.
In addition to both beautiful headliners, the cast also includes Lena Headey, Judy Greer and Domhnall Gleeson, as well as Kiernan Shipka and Ike Barinholtz. All five episodes of the series are directed by David Mandel, the showrunner of the Veep series.
The Band -announcement tells us that the series will land on HBO Max in March 2023 for the lucky ones who have access to the platform. No French release date has yet been communicated.
