HBO has ordered drama pilot for Succession.
Written by Jesse Armstrong,Succession follows the saga of the Roys, a fictional American global-media family that is not only rich and powerful but also powerfully dysfunctional. The drama will explore family loyalty, international business, and the perils of power in the 21st century. The plot has been drawing parallels to the ongoing real-life saga of the Redstone media clan.
Matthew Macfadyen will play Tom, Shiv’s ambitious partner/fiancé and a senior executive at the firm. Shiv (Siobhan) Roy, Logan’s only daughter and younger sister to Kendall and Roman. Like Roman, she sits on the board of directors but does not work at the firm and has been pursuing a career in politics.
