About HBO’s The Righteous Gemstones:

HBO has recruited Danny McBride and John Goodman for their HBO comedy pilot The Righteous Gemstones. According to Variety, the pair are set to lead the half-hour series, which will follow a family of televangelists.

The Gemstone family is described as having “a long tradition of deviance, greed, and charitable work, all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.” Goodman is set to play family patriarch Eli Gemstone, a world-famous preacher who leads his flock with an iron fist. Eli is famous for his award-winning weekly television program, and although some people think that his light is fading, he doesn’t take questions from anyone. McBride, meanwhile, will play his son Jesse Gemstone, who wants to expand and modernize their company, seeing himself as a “maverick in the ministry game.”
