“The Circus: Inside the Wildest Political Show on Earth"
Season Premiere Sunday, January 27 at 8 PM ET/PT on SHOWTIME
 
          THE CIRCUS returns for its highly-anticipated fourth season, as Democrats take control of the House of Representatives and 2020 hopefuls begin to plot their presidential bids. Hosted by John Heilemann, Mark McKinnon, and Alex Wagner, THE CIRCUS will venture behind the scenes in Washington and beyond, exploring the shifting power dynamics on Capitol Hill as Democrats take control of the House of Representatives, along with covering the escalating drama around President Donald Trump's White House as it grapples with mounting legal entanglements and continued scrutiny from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

         With the 2020 presidential race already taking shape, the series will also follow the burgeoning field of Trump challengers as they make their initial forays on the campaign trail. After covering the historic midterm elections and the convulsive Brett Kavanaugh confirmation to the Supreme Court, THE CIRCUS completed its third season with an hour-long finale Sunday, November 11. John Heilemann, Mark McKinnon, Alex Wagner, Banks Tarver, Ken Druckerman, Ted Bourne, and Tom Johnson serve as executive producers.
 

          John Heilemann has covered politics, business and their intersection for 25 years in the U.S. and abroad. Mark McKinnon is a political advisor, reform advocate, media columnist and television producer. Alex Wagner is currently a national correspondent at CBS News, a contributing editor at The Atlantic and co-host of their weekly news and affairs podcast, Radio Atlantic.
