“We have a major problem. He’s erratic, he’s making bad decisions, if he’s not careful he’s going to destroy the company.”

That’s how the Roy family feels about their aging father (Brian Cox) as he begins to step back from the media and entertainment conglomerate under his control.

Rife with vague threats and profanity, HBO’s trailer shows the battle between his three children to lead the company. In addition to Cox, the series stars Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook, Nicholas Braun, and Matthew Macfadyen.

Succession is created by Jess Armstrong, and executive produced by Adam McKay, along with Frank Rich (Veep), Kevin Messick, Will Ferrell, Jane Tranter (The Night Of) and Mark Mylod (Entourage).

Succession premieres June 30 on HBO.
