Trivia

Two members of Russia's Pussy Riot, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Mariya Alyokhina, portray themselves as characters. They were arrested in 2012 and imprisoned for almost two years by the Russian government for their protesting Vladimir Putin's anti-gay regime. Head writer Beau Willimon invited them to submit script ideas based on their personal experiences and one of their music videos plays during the closing credits, which no other director's done previously.

It is insulting how they presented Russian president like a fool and idiot.
