"THE CIRCUS: INSIDE THE WILDEST POLITICAL SHOW ON EARTH" RETURNS TO SHOWTIME(R) ON JANUARY 27

Groundbreaking Political Documentary Series Goes Behind The Scenes In Washington And On The Campaign Trail As Newly Empowered House Democrats And 2020 Hopefuls Take On President Trump

LOS ANGELES - January 4, 2019 - THE CIRCUS returns for its highly-anticipated fourth season on Sunday, January 27 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME, as Democrats take control of the House of Representatives and 2020 hopefuls begin to plot their presidential bids.

Hosted by John Heilemann, Mark McKinnon, and Alex Wagner, THE CIRCUS will venture behind the scenes in Washington and beyond, exploring the shifting power dynamics on Capitol Hill as Democrats take control of the House of Representatives, along with covering the escalating drama around President Donald Trump's White House as it grapples with mounting legal entanglements and continued scrutiny from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

With the 2020 presidential race already taking shape, the series will also follow the burgeoning field of Trump challengers as they make their initial forays on the campaign trail. For a look at THE CIRCUS, go to:

After covering the historic midterm elections and the convulsive Brett Kavanaugh confirmation to the Supreme Court, THE CIRCUS completed its third season with an hour-long finale Sunday, November 11.

Heilemann is a co-author of The New York Times No. 1 bestsellers Game Change and Double Down: Game Change 2012. The first Game Change book was adapted into a movie of the same name, which went on to win five Emmy(R) Awards, three Golden Globes(R) and a Peabody Award.
