The Screen Guide

One year on from taking up residency in Canberra as a Senator in Federal Parliament, Cleaver’s chaos has not abated. Having single-handedly caused the downfall of the Governor General, there are old foes and new. David Potter has made the transition to Senator for the Greens (without the extra ‘e’) and Cleaver has a new nemesis in the formidable and right wing Senator Penny Evans. Nicole Vargas is now Cleaver’s Chief of Staff, and Jack lurks in the Parliamentary shadows, ready to make or break careers. On the eve of the arrival of US Defence Secretary Linus Potemkin for an Asian Security Summit, there is a purported terrorist gas attack on New Parliament House causing the seat of government to move down the hill to its old home and now Museum of Australian Democracy. Old friends, it doesn't take much persuasion for Potemkin and Cleaver to fall into their old ways and party like it is 1999 ... only for Cleaver to discover that Linus is the keeper of the nuclear codes and that he may not be in a healthy mental state due to the pressures of office and a secret private life.
