Ben Platt and Zoey Deutch on The Politician and Advice for 2020 Candidates | theSkimm

The Story

Things are getting political. 

Don’t worry, not that kind. 

We’re talking about the new Netflix show “The Politician.” We sat down with stars Ben Platt and Zoey Deutch to text about the highly-anticipated series. 

Ready to binge. 

Us too. They also mentioned their favorite summer reads and fake campaign slogans. Zoey spent her summer reading "Three Women," "A Little Life," and "Where the Crawdads Sing." Ben read "Less" (three times).
