USA Networks new six-part limited event series, Political Animals
Premise of the show is Elaine Barrish Hammond, former first lady and current Secretary of State (Sigourney Weaver) trying to navigate the political waters while managing her twin sons- one gay icon and one do-gooder, an ex-husband and former President, her mother, a journalist out to get her, and her boss, the President of America.
Thomas ‘T.J.’ Hammond
The Hammond family wild card, 30-year-old T.J. (Sebastian Stan) is the son of Secretary of State Elaine Barrish Hammond and former president Bud Hammond, and the volatile counterpoint to his straight-laced twin brother Douglas. T.J.’s status as a member of one of the country’s most scrutinized families–and the first openly gay son of an American president-hasn’t always been easy to bear, and he has spent much of his adult life battling addiction. Though musically gifted, T.J. has yet to find his calling in life, and is desperate to find a place for himself within his famous family and the world beyond. But despite his good intentions, his desire to get clean and his family’s efforts to protect and support him, T.J.’s demons pose a constant threat to his family and his life.
