MURPH is an exciting political drama, set in Boston on the eve of the Clinton administration. Representative Kevin Murphy and his tight-knit think tank (Katie and Gary) stumble into a political opportunity which could change their lives... permanently. But before they can take this next step, they must tango with personal demons, prejudices, and Seth Smith, the nation’s top political strategist. MURPH is a fast-paced, insider look at playing the political game and the sacrifices one must make along the way.
