Ryan Murphy’s first series for Netflix, The Politician, stars Ben Platt as a man who would be president if he can first make it past high school.

The show’s ultra-precise main titles, by production companies Elastic and Detention, riff on the notion of the perfect politician being more puppet than human being.

Besides Platt, a Tony winner for Dear Evan Hansen, the series also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Lange, Lucy Boynton, Zoey Deutch, Bob Balaban and more.

All episodes dropped on Netflix on Friday, Sept. 27.
