3. Family Tree (HBO)
Stars: Chris O'Dowd, Tom Bennet, Nina Conti
Premiere Date: May 12
Our hopes are so high for Family Tree we can't possibly imagine what could go wrong. Created by Christopher Guest (responsible for writing/directing/starring in some of the greatest mockumentary films ever, like This is Spinal Tap) and Jim Piddock (Best in Show) and starring the unstoppable comedy force, Chris O'Dowd, the new HBO show, Family Tree, has already become one of our favorite shows on TV, and it hasn't even aired yet.
The single-camera series follows Tom (O'Dowd), after he is dumped by his girlfriend and fired from his job, as he explores an old chest his great aunt had left him in search of figuring out his family and lineage with his sister (Nina Conti) and best friend (Tom Bennett).
