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).
