The Emmy nominated docuseries The Circus: Inside The Greatest Political Show on Earth continues its seventh season this week in northwestern Georgia, home of far-right congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, to chart her meteoric rise in power in the Republican Party.
Hosts John Heilemann, Mark McKinnon, and Jennifer Palmieri spend the week in Georgia’s 14th District to examine the source of Greene’s popularity. Her political career forged in controversy, the firebrand congresswoman is poised to take on more power if Republicans take back control of the House of Representatives.
