The One to Watch: 'The Running Mate'

'The West Wing' meets parish pump politics tonight in a new programme, 'The Running Mate' beginning a run on TG4. Lead by Don Wycherley (Bachelors Walk) and Frank Kelly (Father Ted) the premise is a local politician willing to go to any lengths to win a constituency seat. TG4 are masters in scheduling, smart promos and great gems of movies, so some home produced fare is more than welcome.

Tonight (Wednesday), TG4, 9.30 pm
