Stevens will step in for Hammer as John Dean, the young White House counsel torn between his ambition and his struggle with whether he can lie to protect the president.

This new series is described by the studio as a “modern take on Watergate that focuses on the untold stories and forgotten characters of the scandal – from Nixon’s bumbling, opportunistic subordinates, to the deranged zealots aiding and abetting their crimes, to the tragic whistleblowers who would eventually bring the whole rotten enterprise crashing down.”


Hailing from UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, “Gaslit” will be directed by Matt Ross and Robbie Pickering as the showrunner. Sam Esmail, Matt Ross, and Robbie Pickering are the executive producers of the series.

On the other hand, Armie Hammer had to walk away from multiple projects in recent months due to allegations of rape and other violent s***al behavior. Hammer, who has denied the allegations, also dropped out of the movie “Shotgun Wedding” and “The Godfather” making-of series at Paramount+ earlier this year and, unfortunately, Hammer was also dropped by his agency, WME.
