Deviance, greed and charitable work? Danny McBride talks about his new televangelist family in 'The Righteous Gemstones' (ShowmaxOnline)

and was recently renewed for a second season. The hit comedy currently has an 8.1/10 rating on IMDb and an 81% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes. What inspired you to create the show?

They are very different shows, but do you see any similarities between the characters here and the ones you created for series likeYes, the commonality is they’re characters that I don’t think traditionally would be followed as the main character in a story - maybe because of their morals or how they think or what they believe, which are always askew from what you would expect in a lead character.

That’s what I love about television - that it has chapters. So I try to follow what novels I like do, where you might be brought into a book one way and then, four chapters in, you’re suddenly reading about a side character that enlightens the whole thing and takes you somewhere unexpected.
