Netflix's The Politician Trailer

The Politician: The Trailer For Ryan Murphy's Netflix Series Is a Wild, Quotable Ride

Are you ready for a first look at Ryan Murphy's The Politician? I hope you're sitting down, because the new trailer for the upcoming dramedy, which arrives on Netflix in September, is a campy, quotable ride.

If you haven't yet read up on the series, it will follow wealthy Santa Barbara-based student Payton Hobart (Dear Evan Hansen's Ben Platt), who has serious aspirations about becoming president one day. But before he can do that, he'll have to navigate the treacherous political landscape of Saint Sebastian High School in his quest to become student body president and later attend Harvard.

Judging from the trailer, Payton will go toe to toe with some ruthless classmates (Bohemian Rhapsody's Lucy Boynton), who we imagine will put Rachel Berry to shame, as well as an assassination attempt from Jessica Lange's character. (NBD.) Luckily he has the undying support of his mother (Gwyneth Paltrow) to guide him through it all.

Watch the trailer above, and then take a peek at the star-studded first-look photos Netflix shared a few weeks back before the series arrives on Sept. 27.
