The Politics of 'Homeland'

NYT Magazine piece coming Sunday just posted, a Q & A with the two men behind Homeland, as season opens.  Touches inspirations--from movie thrillers to my man Graham Greene--but also a lot on the politics of their former show 24 vs. the current show.  "The thing on '24,' it was a divergent group of political beliefs, but I don’t think that affected the story. Occasionally, maybe. But we all recognized that storytelling is agnostic. Once you start dressing it up as a platform for some kind of ideology or point of view, it becomes propaganda, and I think the audience can smell when it’s counterfeit like that."
