Michigan Governor James Pryce (Tom Selleck) is constantly being hounded by the media as he seeks to become the next US President. His staff will do anything he wants and he will listen intently to his advisors. In full, he has the makings of a successful President. Surrounding him are his wife (Nancy Travis) and a succession of ex-lovers (Faye Dunaway, Teri Hatcher and Laura Linney) all of which are powerful women who will do anything to get Pryce elected into the White House. His only stumbling block is his choice for vice-president.
