K Street: Miniseries - Rotten Tomatoes

K Street: Miniseries (2003)



Critic Consensus: K Street has intelligence to spare, but its uneven approach to an insular subject may prove frustrating for viewers not already in tune with its political setting.


Tv Season Info

Fictional political operatives in Washington, D.C., interact with real-life ones in this 10-part blend of reality and drama. Episodes were mostly improvised and were shot just days before they aired. Despite the intriguing concept and big-name executive producers George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh, the show generated little audience interest.

Critic Reviews for K Street: Miniseries

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (11)

Its starkness - no music, no opening credits and no identification of the show's real and imagined players until the end - is a stylistic choice, but an unsatisfying one.

Will I keep watching? Absolutely... I do hope, though, that as K Street progresses, the show will feature fewer "real" people and more fictional ones.

"K Street" is probably a dream series for political science junkies. For the rest of us, it's smart and absorbing, if not yet altogether entertaining. It certainly bears watching to see how this experimental series evolves.

It reveals, better than any program on television today, how life among America's professional class is lived right now.

June 15, 2018 | Full Review…

K Street seems unsure of what it wants to do and how it intends to do it.

Top Critic

James Carville and Mary Matalin, who play themselves - read: honking, married strategists for hire - spar with self-congratulatory obnoxiousness.
