WHITE HOUSE PLUMBERS takes the audience behind-the-scenes of the Watergate scandal as Nixon’s political saboteurs, E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy, accidentally topple the presidency they were zealously trying to protect… and their families along with it. Chronicling actions on the ground, this satirical drama begins in 1971 when the White House hires Hunt and Liddy, former CIA and FBI, respectively, to investigate the Pentagon Papers leak. After failing upward, the unlikely pair lands on the Committee to Re-Elect the President, plotting several unbelievable covert ops – including bugging the Democratic National Committee offices at the Watergate complex. Proving that history can sometimes be stranger than fiction, WHITE HOUSE PLUMBERS sheds light on the lesser-known series of events that led to one of America’s greatest political crimes.
“White House Plumbers” boasts an ensemble cast that incluesDomhnall Gleeson, Lena Headey, Kiernan Shipka, and Ike Barinholtz. Other cast includes Judy Greer, Toby Huss, Kathleen Turner, Kim Coates, and Yul Vazquez. F. Murray Abraham and John Carroll Lynch also star.
