Danny McBride's Righteous Gemstones Trailer: John Goodman Runs a Hellish Family Business in HBO Satire


Created by and starring Danny McBride (Eastbound & Down, Vice Principals), the half-hour satire centers on the Gemstones, a world-famous televangelist family led by patriarch Eli (The Conners‘ John Goodman). McBride, Adam Devine (Workaholics) and Edi Patterson (Vice Principals) respectively co-star as Jesse, Kelvin and Judy, Eli’s three children.

Per the official synopsis, “the clan carries out a long tradition of deviance, greed and charitable work” — and, at the very least, the first two items on that list are on full display in the trailer above, with a side of sexism and sibling rivalry.
