Righteous Gemstones teaser

The Righteous Gemstones Teaser is Here to Celebrate!

HBO has released the first teaser for The Righteous Gemstones, a new comedy series from the creative team behind Vice Principals and Eastbound and Down.

The Righteous Gemstones tells the story of a world-famous televangelist family with a long tradition of deviance, greed, and charitable work.

John Goodman stars as Eli Gemstone, a renown preacher known for his weekly television show, global ministries, and aggressive salvation techniques. Danny McBride, who writes, directs, and executive produces the series, also stars as Eli’s eldest son Jesse, a man looking to branch out on his own by adapting his father’s famous teachings for a modern audience. Rounding out the trio is DeVine, who plays Jesse’s son, Kelvin, who has a rebellious nature all his own.

Co-starring in a recurring role is Walton Goggins as Baby Billy, a former child star who’s fallen on hard times. Edi Patterson, Cassidy Freeman, Tony Cavalero, Tim Baltz, and Greg Alan Williams also star.

The series reunites McBride with his Rough House Pictures partners Jody Hill and David Gordon Green, who most recently worked on the Netflix film The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter.

The Righteous Gemstones will premiere this August on HBO.
