HBO Max has just published a teaser trailer for what’s coming in 2022. We hope you have a lot of time set aside this year for some streaming!
Julia was picked up for a series by HBO Max in January after a pilot was ordered. Lancashire plays Child in the eight-episode series, which also stars David Hyde Pierce as her husband Paul. The show is currently in the works.
“We’re thrilled to be a part of bringing the legendary Julia Child back to television at a time when we need her more than ever,” said Sarah Aubrey, HBO Max’s Head of Original Content. “This show’s look at her life, marriage, and trailblazing career as she changed the way we talk about food is a total joy.” Our great cast and talented creative team are a winning combination, and we couldn’t be happier.”
‘Julia’ is based on Julia Child’s exceptional life and long-running television series, The French Chef, which pioneered the famous cooking-show genre. The pilot was written by Daniel Goldfarb and directed by Charles McDougall. The series portrays a growing period in American history through Julia and her singular can-do spirit: the rise of public television as a new social institution, feminism and the women’s movement, the nature of celebrity, and America’s cultural progress. The series is essentially a portrayal of a loving marriage with a changing and complicated power dynamic at its core. Julia also stars Brittany Bradford, Fran Kranz, Fiona Glascott, Bebe Neuwirth, Isabella Rossellini, and Jefferson Mays, in addition to Lancashire and Hyde Pierce.
Julia is a Lionsgate and 3 Arts production. Along with Erwin Stoff of 3 Arts Entertainment, Keyser acts as showrunner and executive produces (Edge of Tomorrow). McDougall, Goldfarb, and Kimberly Carver of 3 Arts also serve as executive producers. Todd Schulkin works with the Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts as a consultant producer.
