New HBO Comedy Series FAMILY TREE: First Teaser

By The Watcher on Mar 18, 2013 to Family Tree

HBO has finally released the first teaser for the coming comedy-series FAMILY TREE after teasing the show during the 2012 Yearender clip last year. The show will air on HBO in may.

The show follows a young man investigating his lineage, going from the UK to Los Angeles.

The series stars Bridemaids and The IT Crowd-actor Chris O`Dowd, who also have appeared on GIRLS. The rest of the cast varies from British actors like the comedienne Nina Conti to known american actors like Ed Begely Jr. and Fred Willard. The series is created by Christopher Guest (The Spinal Tap) and Jim Piddock. Like Guest other work this is a mockumentary-show where most of the dialogue is improvised.

The trailer puts the show at a May premiere date. We’ll lock that down as soon as we get the actual date.
