Watergate takes place amid the sexual revolution of the 1970s and is told through the eyes of John Dean, then-White House Counsel for President Richard Nixon. It's described as a Faustian cautionary thriller about a man who thinks he's getting the job of a lifetime as he walks into the Oval Office — only to discover that it's a snake pit and he's being set up to be the fall guy for the most powerful man in the country, if not the world. The series follows Dean as he risks everything to fight back.

Watergate - Carl Bernstein - Netflix

Carl Bernstein ( BURN-steen; born February 14, 1944) is an American investigative journalist and author. While a young reporter for The Washington Post in 1972, Bernstein was teamed up with Bob Woodward; the two did much of the original news reporting on the Watergate scandal. These scandals led to numerous government investigations and the eventual resignation of President Richard Nixon. The work of Woodward and Bernstein was called “maybe the single greatest reporting effort of all time” by longtime journalism figure Gene Roberts. Bernstein's career since Watergate has continued to focus on the theme of the use and abuse of power via books and magazine articles. He has also done reporting for television and opinion commentary. He is the author or co-author of six books: All the President's Men, The Final Days, and The Secret Man, with Bob Woodward; His Holiness: John Paul II and the History of Our Time, with Marco Politi; Loyalties; and A Woman in Charge: The Life of Hillary Rodham Clinton. Additionally, he is a regular political commentator on CNN.
