By the 1960s, Joseph Alsop was the most powerful political writer in America.

He sat at the center of Washington life: loved, feared, and courted in equal measure by the people whose careers he determined. Based on the true events of his life, this drama explores the turmoil of the ‘60s, the conflict in Vietnam, and the profound personal cost of Joe’s intense political involvement.
