HBO has greenlit a new limited series that will revisit one of the biggest political scandals in American history.

The five-part series Watergate scandal series titled The White House Plumbers is set to star Woody Harrelson and Justin Theroux. 

“We’re excited to bring together such a talented team to take on this fascinating look at the internal machinations that brought down the Nixon White House,” said Casey Bloys, HBO programming president. “We’re especially happy to welcome both Woody and Justin back to HBO and are looking forward to getting started.”

The show hails from the Veep team Alex Gregory, Peter Huyck, and David Mandel. Mandel will direct from a script by Gregory and Huyck. The story is based partly on the public records and the book Integrity by Egil Krogh and Matthew Krogh, per Deadline
