The Roys, proprietors of media and entertainment giant Waystar RoyCo, focus on HBO’s power-packed satirical comedy-drama “Succession,” created by Jesse Armstrong.
When Logan Roy, the patriarch and CEO of the company, suffers a hemorrhagic stroke, his four children compete for his position as the company’s heir.
Logan survives the stroke and rejects the squabbles over his company’s status, declaring that his children must wait for more.
Disgusted, the four heirs engage in a variety of activities and blunders, all of which pose a threat to the corporation.
On June 3, 2018, ‘Succession’ premiered to rave reviews from critics and audiences alike.
Over two seasons, the sitcom received nine Primetime Emmy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards for its explosive wit amid the turbulence and dysfunctions of the Roy family.
After the season 2 finale in October 2019, ‘Succession’ became one of the most anticipated TV dramas, with stunning twists and turns.
