A Platt-Streisand ticket for 'The Politician'?

A Platt-Streisand ticket for 'The Politician'?

Dear Evan Hansen Tony Award victor Ben Platt will star in the upcoming Netflix series The Politician.

Netflix is apparently brimming with confidence over the new show, giving it a two-season, straight-to-series order. Paltrow is engaged to co-creator Brad Falchuk, whom she met while guest-starring on Glee, so the series will be a bit of a Glee family reunion as well. Murphy's future with Fox is uncertain with the impending Disney deal, and doing shows for Netflix might allow him to curtail dealing with FAA standards and practices on the series' content.

Plot details for the show are minimal, but it is built around the wealthy politically ambitious young man from Santa Barbara, Calif. played by Platt, notes Deadline.

As is his tradition, Murphy will direct the pilot episode of The Politician with Streisand expected to go behind the camera for a few episodes, as well.

Apple Music Now at 36 Million Paid Subscribers
Make no mistake however, Spotify is still the class for music streaming around the globe with over 70 million subscribers. Growing Apple Music's domestic subscriber base could be a sort of Trojan Horse into the smart speaker market.

There will be several musical numbers in the show, which will showcase Platt's talents as well as Streisand's, and if that seems an odd fit for the series keep in mind the show hails from the same trio that created Glee.

Production is expected to start in the late summer.

This news comes shortly after the debut of Falchuk and Murphy's drama series 911, which was renewed for a second season after two episodes. Netflix previously picked up Murphy's series Ratched. Deadline reports Netflix has bought a new series from the American Horror Story creator called The Politician.
