original content hulu battleground
Available on: Hulu

The show: The first of Hulu's original shows to premiere, Battleground follows the day-to-day grind of a Democratic senatorial candidate's campaign in Madison, Wisc. Manager Chris "Tak" Davis and his young team handle scandals, ward off corrupt competitors, and in the process, learn just how dirty a political campaign can get.

The cast and crew: Created by Two and a Half Men's J.D. Walsh and starring Jay Hayden as "Tak," Teri Reeves as his right-hand Kara "KJ" Jamison, and Jack De Sena as Cole Graner.

The status: Season One premiered last February. Although it hasn't officially been announced, Walsh has said chances are good "Tak" and his team will get another shot (and another campaign).

What they're saying: "In between bouts of forced dialog and buffoonery is a plot that, two episodes in, keeps you hooked enough that you may well become a regular." -- Brian Barrett, Gizmodo
