Gaslight, girlboss, Watergate-keep? The trailer for upcoming Starz historical drama Gaslit has arrived.

Described as a “modern take on Watergate”, the series focuses on the forgotten parties involved in Nixon’s scandal. The show centers on Martha Mitchell (Julia Roberts), wife of Nixon’s attorney general, who’s the first person to publicly sound the alarm on Nixon’s involvement in Watergate.

Check out the official trailer for Gaslit below.

The first season of Gaslit is based on the critically acclaimed “Slow Burn” podcast. Podcast creator/EP Robbie Pickering also serves as showrunner of the Starz series.

In addition to Roberts, the series stars Sean Penn as Attorney General John Mitchell. Dan Stevens, Betty Gilpin, Shea Whigham, and Darby Camp also star.

Here’s the official synopsis from Starz:

Gaslit is a modern take on Watergate that focuses on the untold stories and forgotten characters of the scandal – from Nixon’s bumbling and opportunistic subordinates to the deranged zealots aiding and abetting their crimes to the tragic whistleblowers who would eventually bring the whole rotten enterprise crashing down. The story will center on Martha Mitchell, played by Julia Roberts. A big personality with an even bigger mouth. Martha is a celebrity Arkansan socialite and wife to Nixon’s loyal Attorney General, John Mitchell, played by Sean Penn. Despite her party affiliation, she’s the first person to publicly sound the alarm on Nixon’s involvement in Watergate, causing both the Presidency and her personal life to unravel. As Attorney General, John Mitchell is Nixon’s most trusted advisor and best friend. Temperamental, foul-mouthed and ruthless – yet hopelessly in love with his famously outspoken wife – he’ll be forced to choose between Martha and the President.  

Gaslit will premiere Sunday, April 24 on the Starz app and cable channel.
