With just a month left for the premiere of Homeland season 7, Showtime bosses David Nevins and Gary Levine have shared some details about the newly elected-president Elizabeth Keane.
According to the executives, President Keane may have some similarities to the US President Donald Trump, but she is not representing him onscreen
"This is president who is very isolated in the White House who is finding herself fighting the deep state," Levine said interacting with the reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour.
Meanwhile, Nevins said that Keane represents a "leftie isolationist" in the political drama series.
"The president in Homeland is an interesting amalgamation. She is interesting combination of Bernie Sanders-like leftie isolationist. There are certain similarities but the White House on the show is more left than the current administration. The hard core right wing is represented by the (Brett O'Keefe) character," Deadline quoted him.
The network also released a new teaser for the seventh season of Homeland and it features a troubled Carrie Mathison. "The country is tearing apart!" the former CIA officer says in the footage.
