USA has unveiled a preview clip for Greg Berlanti miniseries “Political Animals,” starring Sigourney Weaver as the U.S. Secretary of State, Ciaran Hinds as her ex-husband and former U.S. president, James Wolk (“Lone Star”) as their randy son and Carla Gugino as a Washington journalist. Don’t worry about getting dirty, because this one has plenty of soap …

“Sometimes it gets a little bit lost in the conversation, but it’s a very important part of our story this year,” USA Network co-president Jeff Wachtel told Stuart Levine of Variety today, adding that “Political Animals” is “bigger in scope and more provocative in tone than most of what we’ve done before.”
