The Plot Against America is the new miniseries from David Simon and Ed Burns. If those names sound familiar, that’s because they’re the duo behind The Wire – arguably the best TV show of all-time, depending on how you feel about The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, and Game of Thrones. The two also collaborated on The Corner and Generation Kill, so it’s safe to say this is a partnership that doesn’t let viewers down. Read on and our guide will explain all the ways to watch The Plot Against America online, wherever you are in the world. 

The Plot Against America: cheat sheet

The Plot Against America is a six-episode miniseries from David Simon and Ed Burns, the creators of The Wire. It’s based on a 2004 novel by Philip Roth and airs Monday nights on HBO at 9pm in the US, between March 16 and April 20. The show depicts an alternative history in which aviator-cum-xenophobe Charles Lindbergh defeats FDR to become US president in the 1940 election and America subsequently doesn’t enter WW2. It’s all told through the eyes of a working class Jewish family in Newark, New Jersey and stars Winona Ryder.

Based on a 2004 Philip Roth novel of the same name, The Plot Against America depicts an alternative history where Charles Lindbergh, not Franklin D Roosevelt, won the 1940 US presidential election. As a result, the country is steered in a decidedly fascist and isolationist direction – most crucially not entering World War II.
