Starz has released a new trailer for Gaslit starring Julia Roberts and Sean Penn about the that will delve into the Watergate scandal.


Penn stars as former Attorney General John Mitchell and his wife Martha Mitchell, is played by Roberts.

Martha Mitchell was the first person to publicly sound the alarm on Nixon’s involvement in Watergate, and as a result she became the focus of an intense White House smear campaign enacted by her own husband meant to discredit her.

Here’s the trailer:

Starz describes the series as:

“A modern take on Watergate that focuses on the untold stories and forgotten characters of the scandal — from Nixon’s bumbling and opportunistic subordinates to the deranged zealots aiding and abetting their crimes to the tragic whistleblowers who would eventually bring the whole rotten enterprise crashing down.”

Last year, Gaslit had garnered some media attention when Penn had reportedly refused to work on the production until everyone in the cast and crew was vaccinated. He returned to the production by September.

The subject of vaccinations and associated mandates to work on certain movies and TV shows continues to be a hot-button topic in Hollywood.

The ensemble cast for Gaslit includes Dan Stevens as John Dean, Betty Gilpin as Mo Dean, Shea Whigham as G. Gordon Liddy and Darby Camp as Marty Mitchell.

The show was created and executive produced by Robbie Pickering. Matt Ross directed and executive produced.


Gaslit will premiere on Starz on April 24th.
