SHOWTIME today released a new trailer for THE LINCOLN PROJECT, a five-part docuseries following the members of the Lincoln Project over the course of the 2020 election and its aftermath. The series will premiere on October 7 @ 8PM ET/PT, and episodes will air back-to-back each Friday @ 8PM ET/PT. All five episodes will also release on demand and on streaming platforms for SHOWTIME subscribers on October 7.

Directed by Fisher Stevens (Dirty Money, Before the Flood) and Karim Amer (The Vow, The Great Hack), THE LINCOLN PROJECT follows a veteran group of former GOP operatives and strategists known publicly as the Lincoln Project, the fastest-growing super PAC in America, as they take on the task of “saving democracy” and defeating their own party’s sitting president.

Celebrated for their scathing ads and biting social media commentary, the Lincoln Project is revealed in the series to be a lot more than what meets the eye, with sophisticated data analytics and voter targeting operations churning away behind the scenes. While working to accomplish their stated goal of “defeating Trumpism,” the group is shaken by internal upheaval, a sexual harassment scandal, and a tidal wave of negative press. As one fight ends, another is afoot – and this time it’s personal.

The series is produced for SHOWTIME by The Othrs in association with Bloomfish Productions and Impact Partners. Producers are Alexander Hyde, Mikaela Beardsley, Allison Berg, Judy Korin, and Amy Redford. Executive producers are Karim Amer, Fisher Stevens, Geralyn White Dreyfous, Nina and David Fialkow, Lyn Davis Lear, Vijay Vaidyanathan, and Jamie Wolf. Fremantle will distribute the series internationally.
