Columnists are kings in midcentury America and Joseph Alsop (John Lithgow) wears the crown. Joe is beloved, feared and courted in equal measure by the Washington political world at whose center he sits. But as the 60s dawn and America undergoes dizzying change, the intense political drama Joe is embroiled in becomes deeply personal as well.
