Today's the day! The first three episodes of Garry Trudeau's political sitcom ALPHA HOUSE are available for free viewing at Amazon Studios.
The next eight episodes will be released weekly, viewable by those who have signed up for Amazon Prime.
The show is about four senators who share a house in Washington, D.C. It stars (left to right, below) Mark Consuelos as Sen. Andy Guzman (R-FL), John Goodman as Sen. Gil John Biggs (R-NC), Clark Johnson as Sen. Robert Bettencourt (R-PA), and Matt Malloy as Sen. Louis Laffer (R-NV). Other players in the series include Cynthia Nixon, Wanda Sykes, Julie White, Haley Joel Osment, Amy Sedaris, and Yara Martinez.
