After a year of public protests against his Presidential legacy, season two finds former President Richard Graves (three-time Academy Award® nominee and Golden Globe® nominee Nick Nolte) turning inward in search of the man he used to be before he was President. This journey is compounded by the arrival of his first grandchild, thanks to daughter Olivia (Heléne Yorke) and a new revelation about his son, Jeremy (Chris Lowell). Graves’s journey coincides with wife Margaret’s (Sela Ward) Senate campaign, as the former First Lady attempts to build her own political legacy at the exact moment that her husband is tearing his down; and his assistant, Isaiah Miller’s (Skylar Astin) search for a new direction after a surprising event in the season one finale. Meanwhile, Graves’s spiritual muse Samantha (Callie Hernandez) finds a new calling as a singer/songwriter.
