DESCRIPTION:
(from Amazon's press release, September 2014) Following the strong debut of Jill Soloway's dark comedy Transparent, Amazon today announced it will premiere all 10 episodes of the second season of Garry Trudeau's critically-acclaimed political comedy series Alpha House on Friday, October 24 exclusively on Amazon Prime Instant Video in the US, UK and Germany. John Goodman (Argo), Mark Consuelos (All My Children), Clark Johnson (The Wire) and Matt Malloy (Six Feet Under) will reprise their roles as Republican Senators living under one roof in Washington, D.C. dealing with the outrageous - and sometimes all-too-real - foibles of Beltway life. The series is produced by Trudeau, Elliot Webb and Jonathan Alter. Delivering hilarious insider insights from the master of political satire, the new season of Alpha House finds the Senators maneuvering the hallways of Capitol Hill with a looming midterm election and an unclear political future. Republican Senators Biggs (Goodman), Bettencourt (Johnson) and Laffer (Malloy), having survived bruising primaries, are facing strong Democratic challengers and will use every trick in the book to woo voters on the road to re-election. Meanwhile, Senator Guzman (Consuelos) prepares for a 2016 bid for the presidency, a pursuit that will bring him into possible competition with one of his roommates. Also returning for the new season are Wanda Sykes (Evan Almighty), Amy Sedaris (Strangers with Candy), Julie White (Transformers), Yara Martinez (Jane the Virgin), Alicia Sable (Dan in Real Life), Kobi Libii (Girls), Brooke Bloom (Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close), Ben Rameaka (The Wolf of Wall Street), Haley Joel Osment (The Spoils of Babylon), Natalie Gold (Love & Other Drugs), and Willa Fitzgerald (Royal Pains).
