Storyline

A TV show which goes inside the political views of K Street lobbyists in Washington, D.C., and people who they give advice to, including senators and congressmen. Some lobbyists are real people, such as James Carville and Mary Matalin, and some are fake, like Tommy Flannegan, Francisco Dupre, and Maggie Morris. The first half of episodes of this TV program were about the lobbyists' relationship with the government, clients, and the law. The second half portrayed a leak, giving away the CIA's identity, and Tommy's relationship with his wife. Written by wazzup364

Brilliant Television
13 April 2008 | by (los angeles) – See all my reviews

I have worked as a TV producer in Los Angeles for almost 18 years and this is by far one of the best series ever created. To start, Matlin and Carville are beyond fantastic in K Street. I realize it is probably very close to who they really are but they are still acting out fictional story lines and it is better than any of the real actors in the series - not that they are not good - they are, just not as mesmerizing. Next to TRAFFIC I have rarely seen a true environment depicted so authentically. In addition, Clooney and Soderberg need to be given credit for using no no score whatsoever to increase the documentary-style approach. While the Francisco Dupre character is over-the-top and out-of-place at times, it is Matlin and Carville's reaction to him that blow you away - they are thinking what we are thinking. All in all one of HBO's finest moments.
