Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm will take a look inside President Barack Obama's campaign war room in Chicago during the premiere of her political talk show on Current TV.

"The War Room with Jennifer Granholm" airs at 9 p.m. Eastern time Monday on the progressive cable network.

Granholm will be joined by Democrat Elizabeth Warren, a 2012 Senate candidate from Massachusetts. Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs also will be on the show.

The nightly show will feature commentary by political insiders, opinion leaders and newsmakers.

Granholm, a Democrat, was the first woman to be elected governor in Michigan and served two terms beginning in 2003. She now teaches at the University of California at Berkeley, near Current TV's San Francisco headquarters.
