Alpha House

Series Summary
When their house mate is hauled off to prison, three Republican senators sharing a row house in Washington, D.C., find themselves in need of a new boarder. Enter Florida freshman Andy Guzman, who joins the guys as they battle primary challenges, party filibusters and the possibility of a junket to Afghanistan. Gil John Biggs suddenly finds himself facing a real opponent in a primary, which means he may actually have to do something -- like go to Kabul, where a group of soldiers from his North Carolina district has just been deployed. Louis Laffer is facing a challenge of his own, but his opponent is questioning Louis' manhood while playing up his own rugged outdoorsman persona in Nevada. Robert Bettancourt, the gentleman from Pennsylvania, suddenly finds he's about to be indicted. Meanwhile Andy brings a gorgeous "contributor" to check out his new bedroom. This Amazon original is the brainchild of Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau, who also executive produces.

  • Alpha House is satire at its most blistering and biting, delivered by a master of the trade: Doonesbury's Garry Trudeau, whose contempt for political cynicism, venality and hypocrisy doesn't keep the jaded protagonists of this bawdy, brazen comedy from being great company. show more

  • A funny but not particularly inventive political comedy about four Republican Senators sharing a house in Washington, D.C. show more

  • It's an accomplished piece of work. And it gains heft from a number of impressive cameos. show more
