Charlie Lawrence

Show Summary

Tony Award-winner Nathan Lane stars as a gay former actor turned idealistic Congressman starting a new life in Washington D.C. Elected as a representative for New Mexico, Charlie is a fish out of water in the political arena and in his new digs at the Watergate Complex. His new neighbor and friend, Graydon Cord , turns out to be a member of the opposition party. Sarah Grimes his self-assured chief of staff, tries to keep him in line and prevent him from making mistakes. His loopy office manager, Suzette Michaels , is a besotted fan of "Guppy Sherman," the beloved character he played in his long-running television series. Ryan Lemming , the befuddled new office intern, happens to be the son of a major contributor to Charlie's party. Now it's anyone's guess whether Charlie, an adored TV star, will be able to transition from Hollywood to the House.

  • A much maligned show which deserved much better than it got.

    7.0
    This series received very poor press during its brief life, and this viewer is mystified. Although certainly no ground-breaker, the show provided many sophisticated laughs and intelligently designed situations worthy of its creators (\"Frasier\"). Lane played a much calmer character than his usual norm, to nice effect. The homosexuality of the character was rarely mentioned but understood; Lane seemed to wear this skin much more realistically than the one he was forced to adorn in his previous, highly regrettable series, \"Encore Encore.\" Television seems a natural medium for this highly skilled farceur, but, as with other Broadway talents such as Kristin Chenoweth and Dorothy Loudon, he has been unable to make the leap from stage and screen to TV.moreless
