The new thriller series Gaslit presents the often untold stories from "forgotten" players of the Watergate scandal. While the biggest star of the real-life events was former president Richard Nixon, the Starz series focuses on his subordinates and the whistleblowers responsible for shedding light on his misdeeds.
In particular, Gaslit centers around Julia Roberts’ portrayal of Martha Mitchell, the first to publicly sound the alarm about Nixon’s political corruption. Starz describes their version of Mitchell as "a big personality with an even bigger mouth." The network goes on to say, "Martha is a celebrity Arkansan socialite and wife to Nixon’s loyal Attorney General, John Mitchell, played by Sean Penn."
Although the series just premiered on Sunday, April 24, Gaslit is starting to garner some great reviews. The Guardian (opens in new tab) called the show "a star-powered Watergate drama that grips and doesn’t let go."
Here’s how you can watch Gaslit.
