The Righteous Gemstones Premieres August 18 on HBO
After Game of Thrones, HBO has few interesting new series coming up. His Dark Materials, the upcoming big project, is expected to release this year. But before that, gear up for an amazing comedy series The Righteous Gemstones which premieres August 18, 2019 on HBO. The cast includes John Goodman, Danny McBride, Adam DeVine, and Edi Patterson.
The Righteous Gemstones Plot
The Righteous Gemstones presents a filthy rich Gemstones family with rude loudmouths. It focuses on a world-famous televangelist family, a bit dysfunctional as well, with a tradition of greed and charitable work. If you watch the trailer you will realize that the Gemstones family is anything but holy. John Goodman plays the role of Eli Gemstone who is mourning the loss of his wife. His elder son, Jesse Gemstone (Danny McBride), who is planning to follow his father’s footsteps but his past sins start jeopardizing the family. Adam DeVine is McBride’s youngest sibling and a pseudo-hipster. Judy Gemstone, the only sister, is played by Edi Patterson.
Overall, the show focuses on mocking people who fall in the “don’t practice what they preach” category. We are living in a world where almost everyone has a dual personality. The social media personality is totally different than the actual person. And that is what the show is about. On television, Gemstones are something else while in reality, they are just greedy and rude.
