Why have we determined HBO's upcoming drama, Succession, to be impressive?
The trailer is filled with wit and f-bombs, but after watching, Succession is already on our must-see list!
No, it's not because of the f-bombs, but when they are well-placed, they work like magic!
That's usually when they're unexpected, and in the scenes we're shown in the trailer, they pop up in the most unpredictable places!
The Roy family — Logan Roy and his four children — controls one of the biggest media and entertainment conglomerates in the world.
While Logan Roy probably has more in common with Rupert Murdoch than Lucious Lyon, but they both like to grab headlines and have a family jockeying for position to inherit the throne.
Succession tracks the lives of the Roy family as they contemplate what the future will hold for them once their aging father begins to step back from the company.
Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Hiam Abbass, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Alan Ruck, Nicholas Braun, Matthew Macfadyen, Natalie Gold, Peter Friedman and Rob Yang star.
Succession was created by Jesse Armstrong, with the pilot written by Armstrong and directed by Adam McKay.
Jesse Armstrong, Adam McKay, Frank Rich, Kevin Messick, Will Ferrell, Jane Tranter and Mark Mylod executive produce; Armstrong serves as showrunner.
Now that you've seen the trailer, are you putting this gem onto your must-see list, too?
Succession kicks off its ten-episode first season Sunday, June 10 at 10/9c only on HBO!!
