Storyline

Explores the behind-the-scenes chaos of an unruly band of campaign workers and volunteers who leave behind ordinary lives for the madhouse. It's about life on the campaign trail and the people who are drawn to it. Running the campaign of a distant third-place candidate, campaign manager Chris 'Tak' Davis needs a team that is aggressive, smart and driven or available. As the Wisconsin senate race begins to take on national implications, Tak must overcome corrupt politicians, staff in fighting, and his own personal vices to win the primary - all while a camera crew follows his every move.

Great Series, too bad there wasn't a 2nd Year
31 December 2015 | by rjspearsSee all my reviews

I found this series to be engaging and funny - sort of like a less poignant update of The Candidate, only looking at the campaign and not the candidate.

The acting is top notch. Jay Hayden is completely compelling as the hired-gun campaign manager, Teri Reeves is great, Jack De Sena is good as the cynical speech writer, and Ben Werner is wonderfully awkward as rookie campaign worker.

The filmmakers use a faux documentary style that is less like The Office and more like a real documentary.

If you enjoy movies or shows about the political process, then this is the show for you.

I eagerly awaited a second year that never came. I would have loved it had Hulu made it. Still, I highly recommend watching this first season.
