History Professor David Eisenbach, who served as communications director for Mike “I’m bat-shit insane and running for President” Gravel, is about to make it big. He announced via an email to, as far as we can tell, his entire address book that he will finally fulfill his life’s dream this Sunday. What do history professors dream about? Election reform? World peace? A hoard of ravenous groupies? Nothing, it turns out, but their own show on The History Channel.
We’re not talking reenacted battle-scenes or animated archaeological models here. Eisenbach’s show, The Beltway Unbuckled: How History Got Made in the Bedroom, could get pretty raunchy. After watching you’ll “never look at Abe the same way again!”
The pilot–created, written and hosted by Eisenbach–will air this Sunday at 8pm. It’s just a pilot, so tune in to support Eisenbach/sex! Maybe if the show continues they’ll do a segment on fantasy pairings like Barack and Hillary. I mean, um, ew.
