HBO set a premiere date for Kathryn Hahn’s new limited-series event “Mrs. Fletcher.” The seven-episode series will debut on October 27th at 10:30 ET. Emmy nominee Kathryn Hahn stars in the title role, and the series is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by New York Times Bestseller Tom Perrotta.
If you like to the original works before seeing the adaptation, you still have time to read the original novel, which is available right here on Amazon.
HBO describes the series by calling it “a dual coming-of-age story chronicling the personal and sexual journeys of an empty-nest mother and her college freshman son, who both embrace their newfound freedom with mixed results.” The show will be available on HBO Now, HBO GO, HBO On Demand, and partners’ streaming platforms.
As the series begins, Eve Fletcher (Kathryn Hahn), a mid-40s single mom who works as the executive director of a senior center, drops her only child off at college and returns home to a very empty house. Meanwhile, Eve’s son Brendan (Jackson White), a popular (though sometimes clueless) jock, finds college is a little more complicated than he expected and struggles to make connections with his more socially and politically aware fellow students. As mother and son find themselves alone for the first time, this sharp, provocative series navigates themes of parenthood, sexuality, love, and identity in a cultural moment when attitudes about gender and sex are evolving rapidly.
The cast also includes Owen Teague, Katie Kershaw, Domenick Lombardozzi, Cameron Boyce, Jen Richards, and Casey Wilson.
The series was created by Tom Perrotta, who also serves as an executive producer and writer on the show. Helen Estabrook also serves as an executive producer.
