“Wow, so you actually worked for Obama on his campaign in 2008!?” So gushed “Kristina Braverman,” played by Monica Potter, on last week’s episode of NBC’s Parenthood, a prime time drama about the extended, three-generation Braverman family in suburban San Francisco.
(A new episode airs tonight, Thursday, at 10 PM EDT/PDT, 9 PM CDT).
Another example of how Hollywood slips its political agenda into the shows it produces – a pretty obvious bit this time.
“Kristina Braverman” showed the enthusiasm for a job applicant she was interviewing to become campaign manager for her run for Mayor of Berkeley.
The woman confirmed: “Yeah, yeah, I worked out of the Chicago headquarters while I was getting my masters.”
