Watch: First Trailer for HBO’s ‘Olive Kitteridge’ With Frances McDormand, Bill Murray

Frances McDormand means business in the first trailer for the HBO miniseries “Olive Kitteridge.”

McDormand doesn’t mince her words, whether talking to an innocent little girl or a depressed Bill Murray, who asks for a reason to live as he grieves the death of his wife. “Don’t have a clue,” McDormand’s titular character says. “I’m waiting for the dog to die so I can shoot myself.”

Adapted from Elizabeth Strout’s novel and directed by Lisa Cholodenko, the ministers follows Kitteridge over a 25-year span. It also stars Richard Jenkins, Zoe Kazan and John Gallagher Jr.

The movie earned rave reviews, including one from Variety critic Peter Debruge, when it premiered at the Venice Film Festival last month.

The four-part series runs on HBO from November 2 to November 3, with two installments airing each night.
