Brian Cox is Ruthless as He Goes To War Over the Family Business In Intense Trailer For HBO's SUCCESSION
HBO released a trailer for Succession, its upcoming drama series from the director of The Big Short Adam McKay, and boy is it intense. The first trailer sets the stage as a father and son prepare to go to war over their family business when the father Logan Roy opts not to step down from his company, leaving his son Kendall distraught. Check out the official synopsis and the trailer below:
Set in New York, Succession explores themes of power, politics, and family. Logan Roy (Brian Cox), the tough, powerful, aging patriarch, is head of Waystar Royco, a family controlled international media conglomerate. He is married to his third wife, Marcia (Hiam Abbass), a loving, formidable partner. Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong), Logan’s eldest son from his second marriage, is currently a division president at the firm and the heir apparent. Roman Roy (Kieran Culkin), Kendall’s younger brother, is Logan’s outspoken, fun-loving son and no longer works at Waystar. Siobhan “Shiv” Roy (Sarah Snook), Logan’s only daughter and youngest child, has been pursuing a career in politics. Connor Roy (Alan Ruck), Logan’s eldest son, and only child from his first marriage, has pursued an independent life in New Mexico.
Man, that trailer is something. I'm not sure how all this is going to play out, but if its anything like The Big Short, I'm sure my blood will be boiling by the end of Season 1. Succession is set to premiere in June on HBO, will you be watching?
