Written and executive produced by frequent collaborators David Simon and Ed Burns, The Plot Against America imagines an alternate American history told through the eyes of a working-class Jewish family in New Jersey as they watch the political rise of Charles Lindbergh, an aviator-hero and xenophobic populist who becomes president and turns the nation toward fascism.
HBO has set its lead cast as production begins on The Plot Against America, its six-part miniseries based on the 2004 novel by the late Philip Roth. Stranger Things‘ Winona Ryder, Zoe Kazan (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs), Morgan Spector (Homeland), Anthony Boyle (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), Azhy Robertson (Untitled Noah Baumbach Project), newcomer Caleb Malis and John Turturro (The Night Of) star in the mini, which hails from Annapurna Pictures and Joe Roth.

OMG! HBO is ready to reclaim its crown, I see. The novel is one of Roth’s best works. This is winning many Emmys.April 10, 2019 at 2:02 pm #1202847373
Who would you say has the best role?
So here for this cast. Ryder, Kazan and Tuturro together could get me to watch anything!April 10, 2019 at 2:22 pm #1202847391
Simon’s shows dont usually perform that well on the Emmys, I don’t expect this one to be any different
Also, speaking on public’s reception and not Awards, rule of thumb- anything that anti-Trump driven doesn’t perform that well, HBO should know it by nowApril 10, 2019 at 6:23 pm #1202847612

78 with 5 reviews. Variety gave a mixed review.March 10, 2020 at 1:11 am #1203376655
It is now 80. In most of the recent shows Variety is always the one who gives a low score and it’s all written by Daniel D’addario, which gives me reliability issues.March 10, 2020 at 3:26 am #1203376688

Yeah I pointed this out with Little Fires Everywhere – D’Addario’s only review over 80 on Metacritic since October is Katy Keene lolMarch 10, 2020 at 4:10 am #1203376710
Other reviews: 100, 100, 88, 80, 80
He’s definitely the outlier. The show would be in the high 80s otherwise.March 10, 2020 at 4:19 am #1203376721
