The biannual TCA Press tour is underway at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverley Hills and, over the next fortnight, America's TV networks will be presenting their autumn content to TV critics from the USA and Canada. The event kicks off today with the HBO showcase, which will include a panel for the new comedy series Camping, starring David Tennant and Jennifer Garner.
Camping is an eight part limited series based on the Sky Atlantic series of the same name, originally created by Julia Davis. The US version was developed by Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, the creative team behind Girls, and is expected to premiere on HBO in October. The plot centres on the uptight and controlling Kathryn, played by Jennifer Garner, and her downtrodden and obedient husband Walt, played by David Tennant. In the show, Kathryn has organised a camping trip to celebrate Walt's 45th birthday, which is supposed to be a delightful return to nature. But when the festivities gather Kathryn's meek sister, her holier-than-thou ex-best friend and a free-spirited tagalong in one place, the weekend becomes one of tested marriages and woman-on-woman crime that won't soon be forgotten. Camping also stars Juliette Lewis, Ione Skye, Janicza Bravo, Brett Gelman and Bridget Everett.
