— May 3, 2019

“Stop the hate and celebrate!” HBO has released a teaser for THE RIGHTEOUS GEMSTONES, offering a first look at the latest comedy series from creator Danny McBride.

The series stars John Goodman as Eli Gemstone, the patriarch of the world-famous Gemstone Family, which has a long tradition of deviance, greed, and charitable work. In addition to his role as director and executive producer, McBride stars as Eli’s son and heir to the ministry throne Jesse Gemstone, and is joined by Adam Devine who plays the “edgy” youngest son Kelvin Gemstone. Edi Patterson plays Eli’s daughter Judy, who resents her family for not getting the same opportunities in the church as her brothers because of her sex.

With a main cast rounded out by Cassidy Freeman, Tony Calvero, Tim Baltz, and Greg Alan Williams, the series is set to premiere this August, only on Crave.
