DEADLINE – Zoey Deutch, Lucy Boynton, Laura Dreyfuss and Rahne Jones have been cast as series regulars opposite Ben Platt in Ryan Murphy’s Netflix hourlong comedy series The Politician.

Gwyneth Paltrow also is expected to be in the series, from Glee creators Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, while Barbra Streisand has been in talks.

The series, on which Murphy serves as writer, showrunner and executive producer and frequent collaborators Falchuk and Brennan serve as writers and executive producers, is described as a one-hour comedy with social commentary.

Details about the plot and characters in The Politician are being kept under wraps, but according to a source, it revolves around the politician aspirations of Platt’s Payton, a wealthy Santa Barbarian, and every season will revolve around a different political race his character is involved in.

The project hails from Fox 21 TV Studios under Murphy’s previous overall deal at 20th Century Fox TV.

The series reunites Dreyfuss with Platt and with Murphy, Falchik and Brennan. She recently ended her run as the young female lead Zoe Murphy in the Broadway musical, Dear Evan Hansen, in which she starred opposite Platt. She also played Madison McCarthy in the sixth season of Murphy, Falchuk and Brennan’s Fox dramedy Glee. Dreyfuss is repped by Authentic Talent and Literary Management, Stone Manners Salners Agency, and Jackoway Austen.

CRASH – Fresh and talented young face Lucy Boynton is one of the most promising actresses of her generation. Playing in movies and TV series since the age of twelve, she stands head and shoulders above the rest for the precision of her acting. Recently on screen in John Carney’s “Sing Street,” she has portrayed her first lead role with grace and spontaneity.

What made you want to act in films?
When I was ten there was a new drama teacher at school, Helen Kaye, who was an actress herself, and must have been the first actress I’d met. She was so glamorous and taught us that acting isn’t about pretending to be someone else, but working to really feel like someone else, departing from your own instincts and idiosyncrasies to feel someone else’s. It was a pretty wild and inspiring thing to discover at such a young age. This is one of the few jobs that offers one the opportunity to live a thousand lives as a thousand different people, I don’t know how you could say no to that.

At twelve, you got your first role in Chris Noonan’s film titled “Miss Potter,” about the life of children’s author, Beatrix Potter. How did you live this experience at such a young age?
It was very intimidating but an utterly thrilling experience. I had grown up reading Beatrix Potter books so I was well aware of the reputation and the remarkable human I was portraying, so I felt pressure of course to do her justice. I had also never done anything like it before so I had no idea what to expect. But it was the most magical experience, and Chris Noonan was the kindest most nurturing leader. I feel incredibly lucky to have had that be my introduction to this industry.
