HBO’s ‘Righteous Gemstones’ on DVD April 14

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release The Righteous Gemstones: The Complete First Season on DVD April 14. The season is already available through digital retailers.

The HBO comedy series focuses on the Gemstones, a celebrity televangelist family behind a popular megachurch that is also a major money-making enterprise. Danny McBride stars as Jesse Gemstone, the eldest of three grown Gemstone children, who sees himself as a maverick in the ministry game but, as the series begins, receives a blackmail video that could put his reputation at risk.

Getting caught up in the hunt for the blackmail culprits are Jesse’s sister Judy (Edi Patterson), who is secretly “living in sin” with her fiancé and dreams of escaping the Gemstone compound, and Jesse’s youngest sibling Kelvin (Adam Devine), a pseudo-hipster who always finds a way to get under his brother’s skin. Meanwhile, Eli (John Goodman), the family’s patriarch finds himself in a point of crisis as he mourns the loss of his wife and questions whether the Gemstones are still serving a higher power as they aggressively expand their empire.
