Come one, come all to “The Circus: Inside the Greatest Political Show on Earth.” This documentary series pulls back the curtain on the 2016 presidential race, revealing the intense, inspiring and infuriating stories behind the headlines. Key characters and events from the individual campaigns are presented in real time, as they are happening. Produced in cooperation with Bloomberg Politics, “The Circus” is a non-partisan, never-before-attempted take on what promises to be one of the most fascinating and consequential elections in modern history.
We go behind the scenes at the Republican and Democratic party conventions. Political journalists Mark Halperin, John Heilemann and media advisor Mark McKinnon take viewers deep inside the fiercest competition on earth - where the ultimate prize is the most powerful office in the world.
