"K Street" featured a fictional, bipartisan consulting firm led by husband and wife duo
James Carvilleand Mary Matalinas themselves, as well as three fictional characters. The show featured cameos from numerous real-life political figures, some of whom were aware of the fictional plot, with others seemingly unaware.
