Emma Thompson Is a Controversial Politician in 'Years & Years' Trailer
The limited series "Years & Years" is headed to HBO, and the official trailer is here.
The six-part miniseries stars Emma Thompson as a fiery politician, and she makes bold statements from the trailer's start to its finish. Her first is the most inflammatory: She proposes that all British citizens should have to take an IQ test in order to vote. Meanwhile, the Lyons family watches on TV and reacts.
The series is described as "an epic saga that takes an ordinary family and catapults them through the next 15 years. As society changes, faster than ever, the Lyons will experience everything we hope for in the future, and everything we fear. They’ll fall in and out of love, and grow old, fall apart and come back together, while constantly looking forward."
The trailer shows the family grappling with changes in the world around them.
"Things were okay a few years ago," one character says. "Now, I don't know what to worry about first."
"I love it," another character says later. "The whole system's in pieces."
"Years & Years" debuts June 24 on HBO.
