Dick was an American political drama series that ran on HBO from 2003 until 2010 for a total of eight seasons. The show was set against the backdrop of the political rise of Dick Van Dyke and his Presidency, while weaving together the stories of various characters in Washington, D.C. in the 1960's and early 1970's. Critically praised for its historical accuracy, relatively unbiased appraisal of the successes and failures of the Van Dyke administration (compared to shows such as The West Wing) and its superb writing and cast, the show won numerous Emmys and was HBO's top rated show for several seasons.
While the show began with only two name-brand actors in its cast of relative unknowns (Andy Garcia and Morgan McAfee) and a relatively low budget, it eventually expanded and accrued a variety of popular actors in leading roles - such as Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Beth Sears, Tom Wilkinson, Barry Obama, Zach Braff, Heather Locklear, as well as small cameo roles for a variety of celebrities and former politicians, including the real former President Van Dyke as well as his son Barry, a Senator from Missouri, and former Vice President George Bush.
