THE CIRCUS GOES "IN THE ARENA" ON SUNDAY JULY 31 ON SHOWTIME(R)
NEW YORK - July 29, 2016 - THE CIRCUS was in the middle of the action in Philadelphia amid boisterous infighting between steadfast Bernie Sanders supporters and triumphant Hillary Clinton delegates as they made her historical nomination official.
This week's episode of THE CIRCUS, Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME, features exclusive interviews from the floor of the Democratic National Convention where President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and President Bill Clinton made their appeals for Hillary Clinton alongside a star-studded lineup of speakers. THE CIRCUS talks with Obama speechwriter Cody Keenan on what the President hopes to achieve by throwing his support behind his former rival. Cameras also capture the typically media-elusive Maggie Williams, longtime Clinton adviser and 2008 campaign manager.
Sunday night's episode marks the final episode in the series' summer run, until THE CIRCUS returns this September for the final act of the 2016 election and conclusion of The Greatest Political Show on Earth.
THE CIRCUS is produced in cooperation with Bloomberg Politics and features managing editors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann (co-authors of the New York Times best-sellers Game Change and Double Down, and co-hosts of the nightly political show "With All Due Respect" on Bloomberg Television) and noted campaign strategist Mark McKinnon. THE CIRCUS is produced by Left/Right, a part of Red Arrow Entertainment Group, for SHOWTIME. Mark Halperin, John Heilemann, Mark McKinnon, Banks Tarver and Ken Druckerman serve as executive producers.
