Summary

Title from container.

Originally broadcast as a television mini-series on HBO in 1988.

Special features: episode introductions featuring original cast members created for Sundance Channel's 2004 broadcast of Tanner '88 ; video conversation between series creators Robert Altman and Garry Trudeau.

In 1988, renegade filmmaker Robert Altman and Pulitzer Prize-winning Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau created a presidential candidate, ran him alongside the other hopefuls during the primary season, and presented their media campaign as a cross between a soap opera and TV news. The result was this satire of media-age American politics.
