Harry Shearer stars as disgraced former US president Richard Nixon in a comedy drama based on transcripts of tape recordings made during his time in office. Rambling conversations, clumsy comments and awkward meetings expose Nixon's intimate, sly and fraught relationship with adviser Henry Kissinger (Henry Goodman, Assassins), his obsession with wire-tapping, his difficult relationship with the media and his anxiety over the East Coast intellectual establishment.
