CAMPING: Spoilers - Synopses For Episodes 1-4 Of New HBO Comedy



David Tennant and Jennifer Garner star as unhappily married couple Walt and Kathryn, in the new comedy series Camping, coming to HBO in the USA next month. Based on the UK show of the same name created by Julia Davis, Camping was developed by Jenni Konner and Lena Dunham, the team behind Girls. The series comprises eight half-hour episodes and launches on Sunday 14th October at 10pm ET/PT on HBO.


In Camping, the obsessively organized and aggressively controlling Kathryn gathers together her meek sister, her holier-than-thou ex-best friend and a free-spirited tagalong to celebrate her husband Walt's 45th birthday. But 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.

Synopses of the first four episodes from the eight part series are now available (beware spoilers!):

Episode #1: Pilot

Written by Lena Dunham & Jenni Konner; directed by Jenni Konner.
Sunday 14th October, 10pm ET/PT
A "perfect" group camping trip, obsessively organized by Kathryn McSorley-Jodell (Jennifer Garner) in honour of her adoring husband Walt's (David Tennant) 45th birthday, is threatened by tension between Kathryn and her estranged best friend, Nina-Joy (Janicza Bravo), the unexpected addition of a pissed-off goth teen (Cheyenne Haynes) and the chaotic arrival of Miguel (Arturo Del Puerto), who is smack dab in the middle of a breakdown and toting his new girlfriend, Jandice (Juliette Lewis), a woman of many talents who rubs Kathryn the wrong way.

Episode #2: Going to Town
Written by Lena Dunham & Jenni Konner; directed by Jenni Konner.
Sunday 21st October, 10pm ET/PT
After her son, Orvis (Duncan Joiner), gets roughed up in a game of flag football, Kathryn rushes him to the nearest hospital, flipping out about his health and the danger that Miguel's girlfriend, Jandice, poses to the weekend. As Kathryn and Walt attend to Orvis, the others hit a local bar, where a racially charged remark to Nina-Joy awakens George's (Brett Gelman) rage. Elsewhere, Miguel and Jandice create real issues for a prissy shop owner (John Riggi).

Episode #3: Fishing Trip
Written and directed by John Riggi.
Sunday 28th October, 10pm ET/PT
When the guys go on a fishing trip, Walt opens up about his dead-in-the-water sex life. Jandice encourages Carleen (Ione Skye) to loosen up and embrace her female strength. Kathryn's attempt to mend things with Nina-Joy is overshadowed by a big announcement. Miguel and Jandice's first misunderstanding gets serious fast.

Episode #4: Up All Night
Written by Paula Pell; directed by Wendy Stanzler.
Sunday 4th November, 10pm ET/PT
A late-night pill swap leads a buzzed Kathryn to crash a neighbouring campsite, where she runs into Nina-Joy, Carleen and some chic old friends. Unsettled by a revelation from Miguel, Jandice ends up sharing a beer with a forbidden friend.

Camping will also be screening on OCS in France, Sky Atlantic in the UK and HBO in Scandinavia, Asia and Spain from October and on HBO Latin America from November.
