The HBO Max platform has confirmed the final dates of some of its upcoming releases, in addition to releasing its first images.
No, it is an advertisement for ‘El Corte Inglés’. Although the headline of this news well looks like that of a fashion magazine. But the reality is that the current cycle of novelties is as frenetic and dynamic as in that sector. Reason why it is good to go categorizing and labeling those novelties that are about to fall and that present their first images and date confirmations today.
In this sense, HBO Max has made a battery of announcements about the premieres that will arrive in the imminent spring, which we present below:
‘Julia’ (March 31)
THE ORIGINAL MASTERCHEF IS JULIA CHILD
Julia Child had a movie life, as Meryl Streep showed us, but apparently, she also had a series life. The new one Julia from hbo max is inspired by the life of Julia Child and her long-running television show, ‘The French Chef,’ which pioneered modern cooking shows.
Through the life of Julia and her singular joie de vivre, the series explores a pivotal moment in American history: the emergence of public television as a new social institution, feminism and the women’s movement, the nature of celebrities and the cultural evolution of the United States.
The eight-episode series stars sarah lancashire (Happy Valley), David Hyde-Pierce (Frasier), Baby Neuwirth (cheers), Brittany Bradford (Fear the Walking Dead), Fran Kranz and fiona glascott (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald). For his part, the creator is Daniel Goldfarb, scriptwriter in series like Tyrant and previously, producer in The marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
‘Barry’ S3 (April 25)
BILL HADER’S MASTERPIECE PREMIERES ITS THIRD SEASON
An expected return, without a doubt. The black comedy Barry, which has brought the ultimate recognition for its co-creator and star Bill Hader, as well as an award-winning return for a ’70s legend like Harvey Winkler (Happy Days) or the discovery of Anthony Carrigan, in the role of a funny Chechen mobster.
The first two seasons of BARRY received a total of thirty Emmy nominations and six Emmy Awards, including: aLeading Actor in a Comedy Series (Bill Hader); Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series (Henry Winkler); sound editing for a comedy or drama series (half hour) and animation; and Best Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series (Half Hour) and Animation.
In this new season, we find Barry desperate to disentangle himself from the world of hit-and-runs and fully immerse himself in acting. But getting out is hard. While Barry has eliminated many of the external factors that pushed him toward violence, he soon discovers that they weren’t the only forces at play. What is it about his own psyche that led him to become a killer? Season three finds Barry and the other characters trying to make the right decision.
