HBO Looks Ahead to 2017

by Devon Thomas  |  11.02.2016

HBO looks ahead to 2017 in the above spot, including first glimpses of Girls’ season-six farewell.

Three new series also are on offer next year, including Big Little Lies, a seven-episode miniseries created by David E. Kelley and directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, based on Liane Moriarty’s best-selling 2014 novel about “three mothers of kindergartners whose apparently perfect lives unravel to the point of murder.” The series stars Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley.

HBO also is getting ready to launch Pete Holmes’ Judd Apatow comedy Crashing. The semi-autobiographical project centers on a sweet, wholesome comedian (Holmes) who, after his wife leaves him, has nowhere to stay but on the couches of New York’s finest comics, Deadline reports.

Finally, there’s a quick look at upcoming ten-part miniseries The Young Pope starring Jude Law and Diane Keaton, debuting Sunday, Jan. 15.

The new trailer also offers up footage of three upcoming theatricals: Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice directed by Zack Snyder and starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, debuting Saturday, Nov. 26; How to Be Single and Hail, Caesar.
