JULIA, a Max Original comedy series, premieres on HBO Max on Thursday, March 31 with three episodes, followed by one episode weekly through May 5.

Julia Child’s amazing life and long-running television series “The French Chef,” which pioneered the contemporary cookery programme, have inspired JULIA. The series addresses a critical period in American history – the rise of public television as a new social institution, feminism and the women’s movement, the nature of celebrity, and America’s cultural growth – through Julia’s life and singular joie de vivre. The series is essentially a portrayal of a loving marriage with a shifting power dynamic at its core.

The eight-episode series stars Sarah Lancashire (“Happy Valley“), David Hyde Pierce (“Frasier“), Bebe Neuwirth (“Madam Secretary“), Brittany Bradford (Broadway’s “Bernhardt/Hamlet“), Fran Kranz (“Homecoming“) and Fiona Glascott (“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald“).

JULIA is produced by Lionsgate and 3 Arts Entertainment. Chris Keyser (“The Society“) serves as showrunner, as well as executive producer alongside creator Daniel Goldfarb. Erwin Stoff (“Edge of Tomorrow”) of 3 Arts Entertainment, Kimberly Carver, and Charles McDougall also executive produce. Todd Schulkin is a Consulting Producer on behalf of The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts.
