HBO Renews “Succession,” Sets Fogel For “Flight”

Hbo Renews Succession Sets Fogel For Flight

It has been a busy morning over at HBO. First up, and hot on the heels of multiple Emmy nominations and strong ratings for the second season premiere, HBO has renewed its Brian Cox-led hit uber-rich dynasty saga “Succession” for a third season.

The second season has been tracking ahead of season one’s performance thus far. The show follows the Roy family as they struggle to retain control of their empire and while the future looks increasingly uncertain, it is the past that threatens to ultimately destroy them.

That’s not all though as over on the upcoming streaming service HBO MAX, “The Spy Who Dumped Me” director Susanna Fogel has been hired to direct and executive produce the first two episodes of thriller drama series “The Flight Attendant” starring Kaley Cuoco.

The Warner Horizon Scripted Television series is based on the novel by Chris Bohjalian and filming is set to begin this fall on eight one-hour episodes. Cuoco plays a stewardess who wakes up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man – and no idea what happened. Steve Yockey (“Supernatural”) and former “Nashville” showrunners Meredith Lavender and Marcie Ulin will all executive produce.
