Alpha House is a television series released in 2013 produced by Amazon Studios. The show stars John Goodman (Roseanne, Treme, Community), Clark Johnson (The Wire), Matt Malloy (Six Feet Under) and Mark Consuelos (Missing, All My Children) as four U.S. Senators who share a house in Washington, D.C. It was created by Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau.
The series is inspired by real-life Congressmen who share a home in D.C.: Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Representative George Miller (D-CA). The series has a number of cameos from celebrities such as Bill Murray (as Senator Vernon Smits) and politicians such as Schumer as himself. Amazon Studios offered the first three episodes of Alpha House for free, with each subsequent episode released weekly thereafter for Amazon Prime members on Amazon Instant Video.
