Actress Susan Sarandon is reuniting with her onscreen husband Nick Nolte to play the heads of America's former First Family in a new political satire series.

The stars portrayed a married couple in 1992's Lorenzo's Oil, which earned Sarandon an Oscar nomination, and now they are teaming up again as husband and wife in Graves.

The TV series will feature Nolte as an ex-president who attempts to right his administration's wrongs as his wife, played by Sarandon, seeks to fulfil her own political ambitions.

The half-hour series will premiere on US network Epix next summer, in the run-up to the real-life race for the White House.
