HBO has announced that Getting On, their new comedy series, will premiere on Sunday, November 24th, at 10pm. There are six episodes in the first season.
From the creators of Big Love (Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer), Getting On takes place in a women’s extended-care facility of a Long Beach hospital. The series follows “the daily lives of put-upon nurses and doctors as they struggle with the darkly comic realities of caring for the elderly in an overwhelmed healthcare system.”
Based on a British series, Getting On stars Laurie Metcalf, Alex Borstein, Niecy Nash and Mel Rodriguez. Guests stars this season will include Molly Shannon, Daniel Stern, Harry Dean Stanton, June Squibb and Irma P. Hall.
