The Plot Against America is the new miniseries from David Simon and Ed Burns. If those names sound familiar, that's because they're the duo behind The Wire – arguably the best TV show of all-time, depending on how you feel about The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, and Game of Thrones. The two also collaborated on The Corner and Generation Kill, so it's safe to say this is a partnership that doesn't let viewers down. Read on and our guide will explain all the ways to watch The Plot Against America online, wherever you are in the world.
Based on a 2004 Philip Roth novel of the same name, The Plot Against America depicts an alternative history where Charles Lindbergh, not Franklin D Roosevelt, won the 1940 US presidential election. As a result, the country is steered in a decidedly fascist and isolationist direction – most crucially not entering World War II.
We're not going to go any further, as we hate spoilers as much as you do, but a final thing to know is that The Plot Against America boasts some serious acting chops. Winona Ryder stars as Evelyn, an unmarried young woman and sister to Zoe Kazan's Elizabeth, who begins a relationship with Rabbi Lionel Bengelsdorf, played by John Turturro.
The Plot Against America looks set to be one of the best new TV shows of 2020 and we can't wait to watch the next episode – because let's face it, with sports postponed by coronavirus everywhere, self-isolation is going to be a bit boring without some good stuff to watch. With that in mind, here's how to watch The Plot Against America online and stream the new series from all corners of the globe.
