Showtime Tries to Re-Elect Boris


Showtime Networks Inc. will take a "serio-comic" look at the true story of three American political consultants who were hired by a group of Russian businessmen to manage Russian President Boris Yeltsin's re-election campaign in 1996.

The network will debut Showtime Original Picture Spinning Boris Sunday, March 14 at 8 p.m. EST/PST.

The film stars Jeff Goldblum, Anthony LaPaglia and Liev Schreiber as the trio of elite consultants.

Roger Spottiswoode (The Sixth Day, Tomorrow Never Dies and Showtime Original Pictures Noriega: God's Favorite and Hiroshima) directed Spinning Boris.
