K Street Shuffle September 17, 2003

Posted by David Card in Uncategorized.

Lots of buzz, at least from the political digerati, about HBO’s latest oh-so-meta experiment, K Street. Actors interacting with real politicos playing themselves and James Carville playing, well, the role he’s been playing at least since that great documentary The War Room (1994)

Supposedly, Howard Dean really got the line on Trent Lott from Carville during the K Street filming. Whoa. Remember Kurt Andersen’s 10 minutes in the future Turn of the Century? It featured a TV show that was a real news show with a parallel fictional backstory – a great idea; I’d watch that. It’s already looking very 5 minutes ago.
