Multiple outlets confirm that Woody Harrelson and Justin Theroux are set to star in a forthcoming Watergate HBO limited series.
The Watergate scandal series is titled The White House Plumbers and hails from Veep executive producers Alex Gregory, Peter Huyck, and David Mandel.
The five-part series is set to dive headfirst into one of the biggest political scandals in American history. Mandel will direct from a script by Gregory and Huyck, which is based partly on public records and the book Integrity by Egil Krogh and Matthew Krogh, according to Deadline.
“We’re excited to bring together such a talented team to take on this fascinating look at the internal machinations that brought down the Nixon White House,” said Casey Bloys, HBO programming president. “We’re especially happy to welcome both Woody and Justin back to HBO and are looking forward to getting started.”
