What Is the Story of The Best Man?
Set in 1960 at the National Convention in Philadelphia, The Best Man is the story of two presidential candidates hoping to earn their party’s nomination: Secretary William Russell (John Larroquette) and Senator Joseph Cantwell (Eric McCormack). When Cantwell threatens to smear Russell’s reputation with a rumor about his mental health, Russell faces a tough decision. Will he unleash an equally devastating smear on Cantwell to win the presidential ticket, or keep his moral integrity intact even if it means losing the race?
