VIDEO: HBO Debuts First Trailer for OLIVE KITTERIDGE with Frances McDormand

Frances McDormand and Richard Jenkins star in the four-part HBO Miniseries drama OLIVE KITTERIDGE, a film by nominated director Lisa Cholodenko, based on Elizabeth Strout's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name with a teleplay by Jane Anderson. The miniseries also stars Bill Murray, John Gallagher, Jr., Peter Mullan, Rosemarie DeWitt and Zoe Kazan.

OLIVE KITTERIDGE tells the poignantly sweet, acerbically funny and devastatingly tragic story of a seemingly placid New England town wrought with illicit affairs, crime and tragedy, told through the lens of Olive (Frances McDormand), whose wicked wit and harsh demeanor mask a warm but troubled heart and staunch moral center. Richard Jenkins portrays Olive's husband Henry. The story, which spans 25 years, focuses on her relationships with her husband, Henry, the good-hearted and kindly town pharmacist; their son Christopher (John Gallagher, Jr.), who resents his mother's approach to parenting; and other members of their community. The first two parts, "Pharmacy" and "Incoming Tide," debut SUNDAY, NOV. 2 (9:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), followed the next night by the debut of the final two parts, "A Different Road" and "Security," on MONDAY, NOV. 3 (9:00-11:00 p.m.).

An HBO Miniseries presentation of a Playtone production in association with As Is, OLIVE KITTERIDGE is executive produced by Gary Goetzman, Tom Hanks, Frances McDormand and Jane Anderson. Steven Shareshian co-executive produces.
