Storytellers Find Fertile Material in Washington Dysfunction

  • Aired: 08/27/2013

  • Rating: NR

Jeffrey Brown speaks with a few who have found inspiration: Beau Willimon, co-creator of the series "House of Cards," Jay Roach, director of the comedy "The Campaign," and novelist and critic Thomas Mallon.
