Season Seven Returns This Fall with Eight New Episodes

NEW YORK – September 23, 2022 – The Emmy® nominated docuseries THE CIRCUS: INSIDE THE GREATEST POLITICAL SHOW ON EARTH kicks off the second half of its seventh season covering the unprecedented impact of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade on the midterm elections.

Hosts John Heilemann, Mark McKinnon, and Jennifer Palmieri crisscross the country examining how the elimination of the constitutional right to abortion, the law of the land for 50 years, is energizing voters and upending elections – from the stunning vote in Kansas this summer, to the battlegrounds of Michigan and North Carolina.

Episode includes:

Behind-the-scenes access with Vice President Kamala Harris as she heads to the critical swing state of Wisconsin to speak about the legal fight over reproductive rights.
Gretchen Whitmer, the Democratic governor of Michigan, on how the ruling on abortion is impacting voters in her state.
Republican Pat McCrory, former governor of North Carolina, on how abortion has shaken up the razor-tight senate race in his state.
Democrat Kathleen Sebelius, former governor of Kansas, on the political reverberations still being felt from her state’s stunning vote to preserve abortion rights this summer.

THE CIRCUS is produced by Left/Right for SHOWTIME. John Heilemann, Mark McKinnon, Jennifer Palmieri, Banks Tarver, Ken Druckerman, Tom Johnson and Divya Chungi serve as executive producers.
