The Columnist Show Poster

The Columnist News & Features

The Columnist is set in mid-century America, when columnists are kings and Joseph Alsop wears the crown. Joe is beloved, feared and courted in equal measure by the Washington political world at whose center he sits. But as the 1960s dawn and America undergoes dizzying change, the intense political drama Joe is embroiled in becomes deeply personal as well.

This show is closed.
