HBO's new political satire miniseries, White House Plumbers, is set to premiere on May 1, 2023. The show entails the story of the Watergate Scandal, a historic event in American presidential history that led to the eventual resignation of President Richard Nixon. It centers around the point of view of Agent E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy.

Here's a short synopsis of the miniseries, as per IMDb:

"A five-part series that tells the true story of how Nixon's own political saboteurs and Watergate masterminds, E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy, accidentally toppled the presidency they were trying to protect."

However, the series' high expectations are also a consequence of the star-studded cast it houses, including names like Woody Harrelson, Justin Theroux, and Kiernan Shipka. It is created and written by Alex Gregory and Peter Huyck and directed by David Mandel, based on the 2007 book Integrity by Egil Krogh and Matthew Krogh.
