Titled The G Word with Adam Conover, the series will see the Adam Ruins Everything comedian explore whether government is a 'dirty word or a trusted institution' by interviewing the civil servants who work in the White House.

The upcoming series is loosely based off Michael Lewis's book The Fifth Risk, which explored the transition of power to from the Obama administration to Donald Trump after the 2016 election, and all the chaos which came along with it.
