The visualization shows the 45 US Presidents cronologically ordered, divided by parties (Democrats or Republicans) and by mandate’s duration.
For each President are visualized how many times that President has been performed in movies or TV shows, ordered clockwise from 1900 to today and color-coded according to the show typology (film, TV film, short film, series, miniseries, animated series, sitcom/soap opera, TV show).
The brief texts on the right explain the performances where the President stars as himself before, during and after the mandate (including performances not relevant to his office).
