    New Danny McBride show coming this summer

    Danny McBride (Eastbound & Down, Vice Principals) is returning to HBO with his latest project, The Righteous Gemstones. The new comedy 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. McBride will star as main character Jesse Gemstone, who sees himself as a maverick in the ministry game, taking what his father, Eli Gemstone, has built and expanded it for a more modern audience. In addition to playing Jesse, McBride will also serve as a writer, director and executive producer on the series.
    Joining McBride in the cast is John Goodman (also seen on HBO in David Simon’s Treme) as Gemstone’s father Eli; Vice Principals’ alum Edi Patterson as Jesse’s sister Judy; Cassidy Freeman (Smallville) as Jesse’s wife Amber, a former journalist now devoted to the church; Tony Cavalero (School of Rock) as ex-Satanist Keefe Chambers, saved by Jesse’s younger brother Kelvin (Adam Devine from Pitch Perfect); Tim Baltz (Drunk History) as Judy’s fiance, BJ; and Greg Alan Williams as Martin Imari, a conservative Kenyan, and Eli’s right-hand man.

    Have they said if this is a short series like Vice Principals? I actually really enjoyed that format so I wouldn’t be mad, but I’d also love to get as much McBride as possible so I’m happy either way lol

    I rewatched Eastbound & Down and am halfway through rewatching Vice Principals in preparation for this. Eastbound absolutely still holds up, I love that show so much

    Is this a half hour or a full hour?

    I assume half but am hoping for full.

    how is Danny McBride only 7 years older than Adam Devine
    "he does not like killing babies he likes little babies, he's an interesting ass white boy
    it's a statue of BJ I got it for cheap because his dick is weird"

    I really like Adam Devine in this and making it a Hillsong type church was a really good idea
