Follow the saga of a fictional, American media family whose wealth and power are matched only by their dysfunctional dynamic in HBO’s newest provocative and bitingly funny drama, Succession: The Complete First Season, available now via Digital Download and coming to Blu-ray and DVD on November 6.
Set in New York City, this “witty drama” (Indiewire) follows the Roy family – headed by the aging patriarch Logan Roy (Brian Cox; “Medici: Masters of Florence,”) and his four children – who together control one of the biggest media communications and entertainment conglomerates in the world. The Roy’s story is compelling and often comedic, as they out-maneuver each other through cut-throat family and business dynamics, while contemplating what’s in store once their father passes.
In addition to Brian Cox, the “expertly played” (Los Angeles Times) ensemble cast includes Jeremy Strong (“Masters of Sex,” The Big Short) as Kendall Roy, the second-eldest son who has his eye on his father’s position in the company, Logan’s formidable third wife, Marcia Roy played by Hiam Abbass (“The State,”Blade Runner 2049), Nicholas Braun (How To Be Single, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot) as Logan’s great nephew and potential power usurper, Greg Hirsch, Logan’s only daughter and natural leader Siobhan “Shiv” Roy played by Sarah Snook (“The Beautiful Lie,” Winchester), Kieran Culkin (“Fargo,” Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) as Logan’s cocky, but immature son Roman Roy, and Alan Ruck (“The Exorcist,”Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) as Logan’s eldest son Connor and the only Roy not competing to take over the family business.
Created by comedy television veteran and Oscar-nominee Jesse Armstrong (In the Loop, UK show creator of “Peep Show,” “The Thick of It”), Succession is also executive produced by Oscar-winner Adam McKay (The Big Short, “LA to Vegas,” “Drunk History”), Will Ferrell (“Drunk History,” “Saturday Night Live”), Frank Rich (“VEEP”), Kevin Messick (Daddy’s Home), and Ilene S. Landress (“Girls,” “Mildred Pierce”).
All home entertainment releases include the exclusive bonus feature, “Anatomy of a Scene,” which takes audiences behind the scenes of the series’ heart-stopping season finale, covering the wedding in Wales, along with intimate interviews and insights from the cast and crew. Digital download copies will also include character features introducing the many players in the Roy family, including Logan, Kendall, Siobhan, Connor and Roman.
