Partnering With Bloomberg on Look at Presidential Election
Publish date:

Showtime has greenlit a political documentary series, produced in cooperation with Bloomberg Politics and featuring Bloomberg Politics managing editors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, and political strategist Mark McKinnon. 

The Circus: The Greatest Political Show on Earth debuts in January 2016.

The series “will pull back the curtain on the 2016 presidential race,” Showtime said, “revealing the intense, irreverent, inspiring and infuriating stories behind the headlines of what promises to be one of the most fascinating and consequential elections in modern history.”

Airing until November 2016, The Circus will “examine what really goes on behind the carefully constructed facade of a presidential campaign in real time.”
