The new Epix series “Graves” follows former President of the United States Richard Graves (Nick Nolte) as he learns how his policies have damaged the country twenty years after leaving office just as his wife Margaret (Sela Ward) starts following through on political ambitions of her own. The show has garnered mostly positive reviews, with IndieWire’s Ben Travers giving it a B+ and saying that it’s a “well performed, warmly funny tale.” Watch an exclusive clip from this Sunday’s episode featuring the Graves family in therapy and Margaret unleashing a string of criticism against her husband two children (Heléne Yorke and Chris Lowell).
The series is created by Joshua Michael Stern. He previously wrote and directed the film “Swing Vote,” about a U.S. presidential election that’s determined by the vote of one man played by Kevin Costner, and directed the biographical drama “Jobs,” based on the life of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, played by Ashton Kutcher.
Meanwhile, Nick Nolte has been nominated for three Oscars for his performances in “The Prince of Tides,” “Affliction” and most recently, “Warrior.” He’s also known for his films “48 Hrs.,” “Lorenzo’s Oil,” “The Thin Red Line” and “Tropic Thunder.”
“Graves” airs Sunday night at 10 p.m. ET/PT only on Epix.
