Here's The Trailer For The New Christopher Guest HBO Series 'Family Tree'

Surprisingly endearing, by Christopher Guest standards. While it's got all the cast members of a Christopher Guest film, his foray into cable television appears to have more heart and plot than his mockumentary films do. That could be a good and bad thing, as a quirky, improvised TV show with no direction probably wouldn't be the most durable project (the good part), but replacing Guest's cracker-dry wit with some sappy music and a heartfelt family reunion is a little outside his fanbase's comfort zone (potentially bad). Nonetheless, it's HBO and Christopher Guest, so let's assume everything is going to be okay until we have more concrete cause for concern. Plus, if anyone can toe the line of funny and heartwarming, it's Chris O'Dowd.
