Holy Smokes: HBO Nabs New Danny McBride Series THE RIGHTEOUS GEMSTONES

Give it to me now.

I’m still lamenting the loss of the great Vice Principals and for some reason had it in my head that the show marked the end of HBO’s relationship with Danny McBride’s Rough House Pictures. Today, I am so glad to have been wrong.

According to THR, HBO will air a third Danny McBride show called The Righteous Gemstones, which centers around a famous family of televangelists headed by John Goodman. McBride will play his eldest son and expected heir to his throne. The cast also includes Adam DeVine, Cassidy Freeman (playing what sounds like triplets) and Tony Cavalero as an ex-Satan worshipper. This show is going to be good. We basically knew a lot of this already, but now there's a damn picture:

In addition to all that, McBride is going to direct along with his super talented chums Jody Hill and David Gordon Green. Can we please just have this on television next week?

As you can see, I am very excited. I wouldn’t know how else to react after Eastbound and Down and Vice Principals. We’ll definitely keep you up to date on this one as it develops.
