If a political candidate is personally flawed but stands to make a positive difference in millions of lives, would you help them win an election? That question looms over the life of Paul Turner (Rob Lowe), a savvy strategist sharply maneuvering politicians out of scandal and into public office. With the help of a bright young assistant (Jamie Chung, The Hangover Part II), a shrewd reporter (Julie Bowen, Modern Family), and a seedy operative (Richard Schiff, The West Wing), Turner spins every news cycle on behalf of his clients, which include a philandering Kentucky governor (Eric McCormack, Will & Grace), a blackmailed California senator, and an idealistic doctor turned gubernatorial candidate (Carrie-Anne Moss, The Matrix Series). When the ugly side of Turner s work begins to haunt him, he learns that even in the bloodiest of battles, sometimes you have to fight clean. A smart and crackling look at what happens behind closed doors in American politics, KNIFE FIGHT is a searing political insider story for the new century.
