The Politician stars lobby for your vote in these EW portraits
We promise you these photos
The cast of The Politician, Ryan Murphy's highly anticipated — and closely guarded — new Netflix series (the first out of his reported $300 million deal with the streaming service), sat for EW's cameras at the luxurious Belmond El Encanto hotel in Santa Barbara, Calif., where the show takes place.
The former Dear Evan Hansen star plays lead Payton Hobart, a driven (some would say to the point of madness) and insanely wealthy high school student running for class president.
The actress, who had her own Netflix success with last year's rom-com Set It Up, is Infinity Jackson, a student at the Santa Barbara high school with a mysterious ailment and an even more mysterious past. She's also holds the lucky (or unlucky?) position of Hobart's running mate.
Once a Ryan Murphy accolyte, always a Ryan Murphy accolyte. Lange graces The Politician with her presence as Infinity's nana, Dusty Jackson, in a way you've never seen her before.
Meet Astrid, Payton's formidable opponent. Do not underestimate Astrid.
