  • Bill Sterling, Jr. - a non-politico teacher at a Los Angeles correctional facility - is selected by the governor of California as a replacement for a deceased U.S. Senator, primarily thanks to the popularity of his father, a former governor. Upon arrival in Washington, Senator Sterling declares that he is not a member of either major political party. He approaches his job with a refreshing honesty and vibrance that breeds loyalty and fascination in his staff and bitterness among his colleagues.

  • William Sterling Jr., son of a popular former governor of California, is working as a teacher in the prison system when he is tapped by Gov. Marino, the present governor of that state, to finish the term of the recently deceased senior U.S. Senator. Trouble ensues immediately when it is discovered he is an Independent and not a Democrat, as was presumed by Gov. Marino. Mister Sterling recounts the daily trials and tribulations of a political novice trying to survive in the turbulent, ultra-insider dominated environment of Capitol Hill. He must rely on his instincts, integrity and the knowledge of his experienced staff to get him through. He must also learn when to apply certain "tricks of the trade" and when to compromise if he is going to survive.

  • The scandal-free son of a former Governor of California is appointed to be Senator, whereupon it's discovered he's an independent. Modern day Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
