Succession - Family Drama Ordered to Series by HBO

Share on Reddit

HBO has handed out a series order to Succession. The drama, among Casey Bloys first pilot orders, will get a ten-episode freshman season.

Starring Brian Cox as the patriarch of a family-owned media empire, the series is a rare serious effort from Adam McKay and Will Ferrell's comedy-centric Gary Sanchez Productions. The premise has echoes of the Murdoch clan, with the central Roy family being described as "rich and powerful but also powerfully dysfunctional." The drama tackles family loyalty, international business and the perils of 21st century power.

Joining Cox in the cast are Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook and Alan Ruck as the children to his aging patriarch. Nicholas Braun, Matthew Macfadyen and Hiam Abbas fill out the family — while Rob Yang, Parker Sawyers and Peter Friedman play other characters in the Roys' business world.
