The characters of the President and Vice President were named after the two actors who played those roles in director Rod Lurie 's previous political thriller The Contender (2000). Teddy Bridges, named for 'Jeff Bridges' who played President Jackson Evans, and MacKenzie Allen, named for Joan Allen who played Laine Hanson, his vice-presidential nominee. See more »
This is amazing show! I watched it rather reluctantly, expecting not to like it because Geena Davis didn't really strike me as someone who could hack this role.
Nor do I like the idea really of further rallying the Dems for a H. Clinton '08 election.
However, I was pleasantly surprised! The episode was full of suspense and intrigue. Even Geena surprised me when I didn't hate her or the idea of her character. I found her very sympathetic and intelligent.
Definitely worth a viewing!!! If you get a chance, seriously. It is very interesting. You just might find yourself wanting more.
