The fall season on HBO is firming up real fast as we had another series, this one a new one, into a premiere date. Here are the details on limited series MRS. FLETCHER.
LIMITED SERIES MRS. FLETCHER DEBUTS OCTOBER 27; CREATED BY
EXECUTIVE PRODUCER AND WRITER TOM PERROTTA
Nicole Holofcener Directs The Pilot From A Script Written By Perrotta
Starring Kathryn Hahn (Emmy nominee for “Transparent”; HBO’s forthcoming “I Know This Much Is True”) in the title role, MRS. FLETCHER, a seven-episode limited series debuting SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27 (10:30-11:00pm ET/PT), is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Tom Perrotta. The series is a dual coming-of-age story chronicling the personal and sexual journeys of an empty-nest mother and her college freshman son, who both embrace their newfound freedom with mixed results.
We gave you the heads-up it was in development back in October of last year and got a Teaser in front of you this July. Now it is locked into HBO’s schedule. No Trailer as of yet but we will get that in front of you too when it arrives. There aren’t any new facts about it either except that premiere date, but we just like to keep the new content in front of you and firm up our Schedule Page.
As the series begins, Eve Fletcher (Kathryn Hahn), a mid-40s single mom who works as the executive director of a senior center, drops her only child off at college and returns home to a very empty house. Meanwhile, Eve’s son Brendan (Jackson White), a popular (though sometimes clueless) jock, finds college is a little more complicated than he expected and struggles to make connections with his more socially and politically aware fellow students. As mother and son find themselves alone for the first time, this sharp, provocative series navigates themes of parenthood, sexuality, love, and identity in a cultural moment when attitudes about gender and sex are evolving rapidly.
The cast also includes Owen Teague, Katie Kershaw, Domenick Lombardozzi, Cameron Boyce, Jen Richards and Casey Wilson. MRS. FLETCHER was created by Tom Perrotta; based on the book written by Tom Perrotta; executive producer/writer Tom Perrotta; executive producer Helen Estabrook. The series is also available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms.
Get ready to meet MRS. FLETCHER.
