Carla Gugino will star opposite Sigourney Weaver in USA’s six-hour drama series Political Animals, debuting this summer. Gugino will play a Pulitzer Prize–winning newspaper reporter determined to destroy the career of Weaver’s character, a former First Lady who’s newly divorced from her philandering husband and also the newly appointed Secretary of State. The show, from producers Greg Berlanti (Brothers & Sisters) and Laurence Mark (Jerry Maguire), also stars Weaver’s You Again costar James Wolk (Lone Star) as Weaver’s son, an ambitious politico who is also her chief of staff, and Brittany Ishibashi (Parenthood) as her son’s fiancée.
