Julia Roberts and Sean Penn get political in the true crime series Gaslit, premiering Sunday (April 24) on Starz. The eight-episode series revolves around the Watergate scandal that led to President Richard Nixon’s resignation and focuses on the lesser-known but important players involved in the former commander in chief’s downfall.
Roberts plays Martha Mitchell, an outspoken Arkansas socialite nicknamed “The Mouth of the South.” Her husband, former Attorney General John Mitchell (Penn) is among Nixon’s most trusted advisors and his campaign manager.
After Watergate, John realizes that Martha knows secrets behind the scandal and wants to share the story with the press — the result of which throws their personal life into chaos, and forces him to choose between the president and his wife.
