Beginning in 1970s, the satirical drama White House Plumbers goes behind the scenes of the Watergate scandal. Nixon’s political saboteurs, E. Howard Hunt (Woody Harrelson) and G. Gordon Liddy (Justin Theroux), are zealously trying to protect the presidency but accidentally toppling it instead. Former CIA and FBI agents Hunt and Liddy are hired by the White House to investigate the Pentagon Papers leak. The unlikely pair fail upwards, landing on the Committee to Re-Elect the President, and their covert ops end up including bugging the DNC offices at the Watergate. This lesser-known series of true events are indeed stranger than fiction and led to now of the greatest of America’s political crimes. The extensive ensemble cast also includes F. Murray Abraham, Judy Greer, Lena Headey, Alexis Valdés, David Krumholtz, Domhnall Gleeson, Kim Coates, Toby Huss, Tre Ryder, and Zoe Levin, among others.
