CBS's New Political Comedy "Brain Dead"

I am looking forward to the premiere of the CBS comedy Brain Dead. It looks like a little bit of Veep, a little bit of House of Cards, and a little bit of something else I can't quite put my finger on, maybe The  X-Files or The Night Stalker, only funny, which is perfect for something new. I hope it lives up to its description:

"Brain Dead" is CBS's new comic-thriller set in the world of Washington, D.C. politics. The series, starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Danny Pino, Aaron Tveit, Tony Shalhoub, Nikki M. James and Johnny Ray Gill comes from Robert and Michelle King, creators and executive producers of THE GOOD WIFE.
"Brain Dead" follows a young, fresh-faced Hill staffer (Winstead) getting her first job in Washington, D.C., and discovering two things: The government has stopped working, and something mysterious is happening to a growing number of Congressmen and Hill staffers.
Interesting that "Congressmen" are mentioned. Maybe women are immune?
Catch it on Monday, June 13, at 10, 9 Central time.
