DESCRIPTION: (from Amazon's press release, October 2014) Amazon today announced all 10 episodes of the second season of Garry Trudeau's critically-acclaimed political comedy series Alpha House are now available on 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) 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 (Mob City) and NBC News contributor 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 special guest stars Wanda Sykes (Evan Almighty), Amy Sedaris (Strangers with Candy), Julie White (Transformers), and Haley Joel Osment (The Spoils of Babylon), as well as 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), Natalie Gold (Love & Other Drugs), and Willa Fitzgerald (Royal Pains).
