Gaslit: Cast, Number of Episodes, Premise
Led by Julia Roberts as Martha Mitchell and Sean Penn as John Mitchell, Gaslit brings some real star power. Besides the two leads, the show also stars Dan Stevens, Betty Gilpin, Shea Whigham, and Patton Oswalt.
Based on the Slate podcast Slow Burn, Gaslit retells the events of the Watergate scandal from the lesser-discussed perspective of Martha Mitchell. Martha played a key role in exposing the scandal to the press, and was subject to beatings, captivity, and a smear campaign by Nixon’s administration.
As a limited series, Gaslit will only run for eight episodes, and will likely not have a second season.
