Watch Sela Ward Dish Out Tough Love to an Opponent on ‘Graves’ (Exclusive Video)

Political comedy starring Nick Nolte builds to climax in season’s penultimate episode

Nick Nolte and Sela Ward in "Graves"

On this week’s episode of the Epix comedy “Graves,” Sela Ward is having her political mettle tested.

Ward plays Margaret Graves, wife to an aging ex-President of the United States (Nick Nolte) determined to fix the past mistakes of his administration.

Margaret’s Senate run is a big part of the plot but, as we can see from this exclusive clip, she’s already facing pressures from the old boys’ network, who are hoping to rely on political backscratching to get deals done.

This is the ninth of 10 episodes for the first season of the show. “Graves” was picked up for season 2 last month.

The series was created by Joshua Michael Stern.
