EXCLUSIVE: Alamo Drafthouse and HBO are here to bless your Tuesday night with a one-night-only screening of The Righteous Gemstones, HBO’s forthcoming comedy created by Danny McBride. On August 13 (that’s today), 22 Alamo Drafthouse locations will screen the premiere episode of the series ahead of its August 18 debut.

“We’re so excited to partner with HBO on this unique opportunity to screen The Righteous Gemstones at our theaters ahead of the broadcast premiere,” said Henri Mazza, VP Content, Sponsorship & Events at Alamo Drafthouse. “This is our third time working with HBO for one of their 2019 shows following the sold-out 17-city theatrical screenings of True Detective Season 3 and the premiere of My Dad Wrote a Porno in May. We hope to continue this tradition for their incredible slate of original programming.”

The Righteous Gemstones tells the story of a world-famous televangelist family with a long tradition of deviance, greed and charitable work. McBride stars as Jesse Gemstone, the eldest of three grown offspring, who looks to lead in his father’s footsteps but finds his past sins jeopardizing the family ministry. John Goodman stars as family patriarch Eli Gemstone, and Adam Devine and Edi Patterson play Jesse’s siblings Kelvin and Judy.
