The stars of HBO's upcoming comedy "Camping" are ready to brave the elements.
With production beginning on the series, the cast and crew took to the great outdoors this week. Jennifer Garner posted a set photo on Thursday showing several of the show's actors gathered in a woodsy area. The group includes cast members David Tennant, Juliette Lewis, Janicza Bravo, Ione Sky, Brett Gelman, Bridget Everett, and Arturo Del Puerto, as well as others.
Let us commence. ????

Garner also tagged Jenni Konner and Lena Dunham in the photo, as the two are the shows co-writers. They are basing their work on the British comedy series of the same name, which had a six-episode run in 2016. Like its predecessor, HBO's "Camping" will center on a group of friends who take a trip to celebrate a birthday but end up dealing with various personal issues and challenges from Mother Nature.
In the upcoming series, Garner plays Kathryn, the wife of birthday celebrant Walt (Tennant). She is described as "obsessively organized and aggressively controlling," according to Deadline. Meanwhile, her more mild-mannered sister and self-righteous best friend will be among the couple's camping companions, making it an interesting trip.
So far, "Camping" doesn't have a premiere date, but we're glad to see it moving forward.
