Who’s ready for some (fictional) political drama? Just in time for election season, the taut political thriller The Independent from Emmy-nominated director Amy Rice lands Nov 2, only on Peacock.

In the film, it’s the final weeks before the most consequential presidential election in history. The U.S. is poised to elect either its first female president or its first viable independent candidate. Reporting history as it’s made, an idealistic young journalist teams up with her idol, legendary journalist Nick Booker, to uncover a conspiracy that places the fate of the election, and the country, in their hands. 

The suspense-filled flick features an all-star cast, including Brian Cox (Succession), ), Jodie Turner-Smith (White Noise, After Yang), with Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale), and John Cena (The Suicide Squad, WWE Raw).

We’re super excited for this one, and we’re thinking you will be, too. The Independent is the latest addition to Peacock’s growing library of iconic films, including BeastJurassic World DominionMinions: The Rise of Gru, VengeanceBrian and CharlesThe Black Phoneand Downton Abbey: A New Era
