Succession is a new series on HBO. It premiered last week, after Westworld. From wiki: Succession is an American drama television series about a dysfunctional American global-media family that premiered on June 3, 2018 on HBO. It was created by Jesse Armstrong with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay serving as executive producers. There are obvious comparisons to the Murdoch family. Older patriarch (Brian Cox), younger siblings competing for control, with varying degrees of actual ability to run anything. I read a review that compares them, tongue-in-cheek, to the Bluth family without the humor. Not a bad parallel. I have mixed feelings after the premier. Almost all the characters are @ssholes, to each other and to non-1%ers. It's really hard to care about any of them. But the acting is good, and by the end of E1, you could see a glimmer of potential in the story line. I'll keep watching, and see what it becomes. My fear is HBO's commitment to this series. I saw very little promotion, and no one I know is watching it. Combine that with an E1 that doesn't grab you by the 'nads, and I wonder if it's long for the world. Anyone catch this?
