America 2.0

America 2.0

By Global

Seth McGuire (Patrick J Adams) is a first term Congressman. He’s also an unflinching idealist and a profound optimist. When embroiled in his first ever controversy, Seth is completely ill-equipped to navigate D.C.’s political treachery. Hope comes in a EUREKA moment, putting him at a crossroads: can his bold and revolutionary plan really save this country, or is he going to talk himself right out of office when people hear his crazy idea? Find out in our 6-part, scripted, narrative podcast series - AMERICA 2.0, starring Patrick J Adams, Kate Walsh, Shanola Hampton, Ming-Na Wen, Spencer Garrett, Jack Coleman, Autumn Reeser, and Laurence Fishburne.

2 - You Guys Are Bad At This

We meet the yin to Seth’s yang, his ex, and the chairwoman of the DNC – Anna Rossi. She’s a commanding presence, a no-nonsense politician, and in this case, Seth’s only hope of getting anywhere with his hare-brained scheme.

In the opener, we meet first term Congressman Seth McGuire, who’s embroiled in a terrible PR disaster.
