Gaslit is a 2022 American drama television miniseries created by Robbie Pickering. It is based on the first season of the Slate podcast Slow Burn, which tells the story of the Watergate scandal through the eyes of Martha Mitchell, the wife of Nixon's Attorney General John Mitchell.
The series begins in early 1972 and follows the story of the Watergate scandal through the lives of several individuals on its periphery, including Martha Mitchell, who is a vocal critic of Nixon and his administration. As the scandal unfolds, Martha becomes increasingly isolated and paranoid, as her husband and the government attempt to silence her.
