"K Street" is a 2003 HBO television series about lobbyists and politicians in Washington, D.C. It was named for a street that is home to many lobbying and legal firms.

Each episode was largely improvised, usually focused around the major political news of the week. This required that the show be shot within days of its air date in order to keep the episode fresh with current events.

"K Street" featured a fictional, bipartisan consulting firm led by husband and wife duo James Carville and Mary Matalin as 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. The show made a notable impact on the 2004 Democratic Primary when Carville gave a line to Vermont Governor and Presidential hopeful Howard Dean to use in a debate. Local appearances by the show's producer, actor George Clooney (director Steven Soderbergh was also involved in the project), caused considerable stir with frequent mentions in the light-news "Style" section of "The Washington Post".

The show was quite popular in the Washington, D.C. area and received a fair amount of critical acclaim Fact|date=February 2007, but failed to find a broader audience. HBO declined to renew the show after the initial 10 episodes on November 24, 2003.
