Written by Joshua Michael Stern, Graves is a political satire that centers on former U.S. president Richard Graves (Nolte), who has an epiphany two decades after leaving office, realizing that some of his policies have brought damage to the country. He embarks on a quest to right the wrongs just as his wife, Margaret Graves (Ward), decides to follow her own political ambitions and pursue a career in politics.
Hamlin will play Jonathan Dalton, a billionaire who shares a romantic history with Margaret.
The gig reunites him with Lionsgate TV, producer of AMC’s drama Mad Men where Hamlin also had a recurring role, earning an Emmy nomination. The L.A. Law alum is repped by UTA and Management 360.
