We don't know a whole lot about HBO's Succession - their upcoming episodic drama produced by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay (The Big Short) and created by Jesse Armstrong (The Thick of It). But with a cast that includes Jeremy Strong, Brian Cox, Hiam Abbas, and Kieran Culkin, it's somewhat hard to say no to such a bizarre acting collective.
Now, HBO has released a teaser for the series' first ten-episode season, and it's promising a lot of dick talk from Brian Cox's aging patriarch.
Take a look:
The official synopsis from the network reads as such:
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.
If anything, that teaser promises a flood of profanity fans of Malcolm Tucker will certainly eat right up.
Succession premieres on HBO this summer, with the McKay-helmed pilot. DVR that shit if you're busy.
