About This Show

It’s 1952. Richard Nixon (played by Anthony LaPaglia) is campaigning as his party’s candidate for Vice-President, his wife Pat (Katherine Erbe) proudly at his side, when an accusation of financial impropriety almost ends his promising career. In a momentous speech, he takes charge of his fate, and changes the character of American politics forever.

Checkers is a revelatory look at Nixon’s drive, history and most surprisingly, his marriage to Pat – all of which are explored with insight, blistering wit and unexpected tenderness.

Anthony LaPaglia and Kathryn Erbe’s strong performances as Richard and Pat Nixon elevate Douglas McGrath’s otherwise uneven drama.
