Kate Winslet to Star in HBO’s Trump-Era Series The Regime

In HBO‘s “The Regime,” Kate Winslet takes on the role of a dictator. Her character rules with an iron fist, quashing any dissent. Director Stephen Frears made a comparison that might hit close to home for American audiences.

He pointed out similarities to American politics. Specifically, he mentioned how Winslet’s character might remind viewers of certain real-life political figures.

The Hollywood Reporter got a blunt message from Frears. He didn’t mince words: “Don’t vote for Trump.” He directed three episodes this season and sees clear parallels between the show’s fictional world and our reality.

Frears noted the growing possibility of Trump’s return. Since the show’s inception, this reality has only become more pronounced.

Jessica Hobbs directed the other half of the season. While she didn’t name names, her message was clear. The show, a mix of politics and dark humor, aims to make viewers think. It’s about the absurdity of real-world politics.

“The Regime” premiered in March. Winslet leads a stellar cast, with episodes airing Sundays. The season wraps up on April 7.

Viewers, have you noticed the Trump parallels? Feel free to share your thoughts below.
