|Olive Kitteridge premieres November 2 on HBO.|
Academy Award winner Frances McDormand (Fargo, North Country) and Academy Award nominee Richard Jenkins (The Visitor, Six Feet Under) star in this HBO miniseries drama, directed by Academy Award-nominated director Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are All Right, Laurel Canyon) from a teleplay by Emmy-winner Jane Anderson (The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom and Normal). Based on Elizabeth Strout's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name, 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 a woman whose wicked wit and harsh demeanor mask a warm but troubled heart and a staunch moral center. The supporting cast includes Bill Murray, John Gallagher, Jr., Peter Mullan, Rosemarie DeWitt and Zoe Kazan. Executive produced by Gary Goetzman, Tom Hanks, Frances McDormand and Jane Anderson.
