The Politician: Watch the first trailer for Ryan Murphy's Netflix high school comedy

Payton for President.

That’s the general gist for Ryan Murphy‘s new comedy (and first Netflix series) The Politician. Payton Hobart (Dear Evan Hansen‘s Ben Platt) has his eyes set on the White House but first tackles his Santa Barbra high school’s election.

Naturally, nothing is as simple or as easy as it first seems and Payton finds himself in an increasingly dramatic political battle, especially when it comes to his vicious opponent Astrid (Lucy Boynton).

The trailer also showcases two of Murphy’s regular collaborators: Gwyneth Paltrow as Payton’s glam mother and Jessica Lange as the grandmother of Payton’s running mate Infinity (Set It Up‘s Zoey Deutch).

Murphy crafted The Politician with his fellow Glee creators, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan.

The series debuts on Netflix on Sept. 27.
