Mister Sterling

Show Summary

From Emmy Award-winning writer/producer Lawrence O'Donnell (NBC's "The West Wing") comes this mid-season drama chronicling the daily struggles of well-intentioned young Senator William Sterling Jr. (Josh Brolin, "Hollow Man," "The Mod Squad") who brings a fresh perspective -- and his own agenda -- to Capitol Hill. Thrust into political office after the un-timely death of the senior Senator from California, Sterling is forced to navigate the murky world of Washington politics with only the help of his resourceful staff to guide him. This political drama also stars three-time Tony Award winner, Audra McDonald ("Carousel," "Ragtime," "Master Class") as super-charged chief of staff Jackie Brock; William Russ ("Boy Meets World") as legislative director Tommy Doyle, the principled Beltway insider; David Noroña ("Six Feet Under") as Leon, Sterling's resident techno-whiz, and James Whitmore ("The Shawshank Redemption") as Sterling's father, the popular and powerful former governor of California. In addition, Graham Greene ("The Green Mile") portrays Senator Jackson, Sterling's confidant while Chandra West ("The Salton Sea") stars as Laura Chandler, an ambitious political reporter. MSNBC senior political analyst O'Donnell is executive producer and creator of this production from NBC Studios and Universal Network Television. Jim Hart, Michael Dinner and Jeff Melvoin serve as co-executive producers. [center] Repeats air on Universal HD on Wednesdays at 5pm ET and 11pm ET.moreless

  • This was by far one of the best shows to air. I was very disappointed to find out about it's demise. I truly believe that this show was canceled not due to lack of interest but more because it accurately reflected the true nature of the political machine.moreless

    This was by far one of the best shows to air . I was very disappointed to find out about it's demise. I truly believe that this show was canceled not due to lack of interest but more because it accurately reflected the true nature of the political machine. If this show had continued, the lifetime politicians would have been exposed and would have faced the wrath of a people with an ever-decreasing trust and interest in our government and the political processes. Mister Sterling was the person we each secretly wish we could be, the one that made a difference. I am sick of reality shows, I have my own reality and it is usually significantly more interesting than the ones they show on tv. We need more shows like Mister Sterling that are not only entertaining but thought-provoking and fun.moreless
  • This great program had a very short run during mid season, therefore was way overlooked. All the actors were brilliant in there roles. This was the first TV show I ever saw potraying a Senator , and his staff dealing with all the DC politics.moreless

    Senator Sterling was an independant, which made the interaction with REPUBLICANS and DEMOCRATS facinating. I recall one episode where Sterling was holding a fillabuster on the Senate floor by continnually reading anything for hours to get his proposal passed. ( Not like today's fillabusters ). Just an excellent show, and to this day I cannot understand it's early death!
