Tanner, Robert Altmans Pseudo-Präsidentschaftswahlkampf-Doku von 1988, ist - wenn Sie mich fragen - einer seiner besten Filme, in Form einer Fernsehserie. Jetzt gibt es eine Fortsetzung, darüber berichtet die Village Voice:

Altman says one of his favorite scenes in Tanner on Tanner takes place during the Democratic convention: Alex Tanner goes to interview Ron Reagan Jr. and runs into Alexandra Kerry, who just so happens to be making a documentary about her dad's campaign. For real. Cynthia Nixon sees this collision of Alexes as "the centerpiece" of the series. "It's like the ultimate meeting of reality and fiction," she says, a few days after winning the Emmy for her role as Miranda on Sex and the City (and a few days before the tabloids outed her). When asked if she offered Alex Kerry any advice based on her experience as a (fictional) candidate's daughter, Nixon laughs. "Well, as Ron Reagan Jr. tells me in the episode, 'Of course, you don't really know what it's like—your dad lost.' "
