HBO has blessed us with the trailer for "The Righteous Gemstones."
The upcoming comedy series centers on the Gemstone family, a famous family of televangelists that is also extremely dysfunctional. The show's synopsis describes them as having "a long tradition of deviance, greed and charitable work." That's on display in the new preview -- we see plenty of both holy and unholy behavior.
John Goodman plays the patriarch, Eli Gemstone, while his kids are played by Danny McBride (Jesse), Adam DeVine (Kelvin), and Edi Patterson (Judy). They have an interesting dynamic, with the brothers, in particular, being at odds with one another in the trailer. They get competitive during baptisms and trips to the bathroom alike. Watch below.
The series also stars Cassidy Freeman, Tony Calvero, Tim Baltz, and Greg Alan Williams. It's created by McBride, who serves as writer, director, and executive producer. Jody Hill and David Gordon Green executive produce as well.
"The Righteous Gemstones" premieres in August on HBO.
