Fall TV Preview

Jennifer Garner's Camping Gets October Premiere Date at HBO


You can now mark your calendars for Jennifer Garner’s highly anticipated return to primetime. Her HBO comedy, Camping, is set to premiere on Sunday, Oct. 14, the network announced at the Television Critics’ Association press tour on Wednesday.

The eight-episode comedy, which hails from Girls duo Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, is based on the British series of the same name. The official logline reads as follows:

To celebrate her husband Walt’s 44th birthday, the obsessively organized and aggressively controlling Kathryn (Garner) gathers together her meek sister, her holier-than-thou ex-best friend and a free-spirited tagalong – and what was supposed to be a delightful, back-to-nature camping trip quickly becomes a weekend of tested marriages and woman-on-woman crime that won’t soon be forgotten.

Rounding out the cast are David Tennant (Doctor Who) as Kathryn’s husband Walt, Ione Skye (Arrested Development) as Kathryn’s sister Carleen, Brett Gelman (Stranger Things) as Walt’s best friend George and Juliette Lewis (Wayward Pines) as Jandice, as well as Janicza Bravo (Love) and Arturo Del Puerto (Fear the Walking Dead), whose roles have not been disclosed. Bridget Everett (Lady Dynamite) also recurs.

In addition to Camping, HBO’s fall line-up includes The Deuce Season 2 (premiering Sunday, Sept. 9) and concert special Flight of the Concords: Live at the London Apollo (premiering Saturday, Oct. 6).
