Delightfully Twisted First Trailer for HBO's THE RIGHTEOUS GEMSTONES with Danny McBride and John Goodman
HBO has released the first trailer for their upcoming new comedy series The Righteous Gemstones. The show stars Danny McBride, John Goodman, Adam Devine, and Edi Patterson.
The story centers around “a world-famous televangelist family with a long tradition of deviance, greed and charitable work – all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.” This looks like it’s going to be a wild and delightfully twisted series that you won’t want to miss out on.
Danny McBride takes on the role of Jesse Gemstone, a character “who sees himself as a maverick in the ministry game, taking what his father, Eli Gemstone (John Goodman), has built and expanded it for a more modern audience.”
Edi Patterson takes on the role of Jesse’s sister Judy, and Adam Devine is playing Jesse’s younger brother Kelvin. The series also stars Cassidy Freeman as Jesse’s wife Amber, “a former journalist now devoted to the church”; Tony Cavalero as ex-Satanist Keefe Chambers, “saved by Kelvin”; Tim Baltz as Judy’s fiance, BJ; and Greg Alan Williams as Martin Imari, “a conservative Kenyan", and Eli’s right-hand man.”
Walton Goggins also has a role on the series, so that’s a plus! The Righteous Gemstones premieres August 18th at 10PM.
