It will explore family loyalty, international business, and the perils of power in the 21st century…Brian Cox stars in the 10-episode drama series as Logan, the patriarch of the Roy family who is tough and powerful, but aging fast in his role as the head of the international media conglomerate owned by his family. Then there’s Jeremy Strong as Kendall Roy, the eldest son of the family (from Logan’s second marriage) who acts as a division president at the family firm and is also the heir apparent to Roy family business. Kieran Culkin plays Kendall’s outspoken and fun-loving younger brother Roman, who still sits on the board of directors at the family firm, but doesn’t really work there anymore. Finally, Sarah Snook plays Shi (Siobhan), the only daughter in the Roy family.”
