Gaslit – a new political thriller starring Julia Roberts – premieres this Sunday, 24th April 2022. The eight-part Starz Original series promises a "modern take on the 1970s Watergate scandal", plus a large helping of dark humour. UK viewers can watch free with a StarzPlay 7-day trial. Make sure you know how to watch Gaslit from anywhere with a VPN.
It's the 50th anniversary of Watergate this year, hence the arrival of highly-anticipated (and apparently slightly weird) political docudrama Gaslit. The show looks at events through the eyes of socialite and whistleblower Martha Mitchell (Julia Roberts), and her Attorney General husband John (Sean Penn), as they play a major role in the downfall of President Richard Nixon.
Gaslit has received a largely warm welcome from the critics, with The Guardian hailing it as a "fresh angle on familiar material" that provides "a striking warning from history". Gaslit currently enjoys an impressive 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, too.
The series is exclusive to US network Starz (we'll show you how to watch it in the UK below). Episode 1 premieres on Sunday, 24th April. Make sure you know how to watch an Gaslit live stream from anywhere.

Watch Gaslit on Starz from abroad using a VPN
Even if you are a Starz subscriber, you won't be able to access your account when outside your home country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. It creates a private connection between your device and the internet. There are lots of VPNs to choose from, but we think ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is one of the very best...
