THE LINCOLN PROJECT, a five-part verité docu-series for Showtime, captures the Icarus-like rise and fall of America’s fastest growing Super PAC during the 2020 Presidential Election. During six months of exclusive access, our cameras followed these former Republican political operatives and strategists as they pursued their stated goal to “defeat Trumpism.” However, in the wake of their triumph as a major force in the 2020 election cycle, no one could have predicted their subsequent implosion. Plagued by scandals and secrets, these political gunslingers, before our cameras, turned their weapons on each other.
