With Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston at its heart, this big-money drama follows President Lyndon B Johnson’s struggles to pass the Civil Rights Act. With Dr Martin Luther King Jr’s passionate lobbying and filibustering southern Senators to contend with, the president’s infamous wheeler-dealer skills are tested to the limit. The West Wing’s Bradley Whitford returns to politics as Hubert Humphrey and Melissa Leo steals scenes as Lady Bird Johnson.
