HBO’s Olive Kitteridge available to watch online in UK in December

This December HBO’s acclaimed mini-series Olive Kitteridge will be available to watch online in the UK.
The series, which stars Academy Award winner Frances McDormand (Fargo) and Academy Award nominees Richard Jenkins (Six Feet Under) and Bill Murray (Lost in Translation), is based on Elizabeth Strout’s Pulitzer prize-winning novel and has been directed by Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids are Alright).
It will screen exclusively on Sky Atlantic in December, when it will also be available to stream live on Sky Go and on catch-up through Sky On Demand. For non-Sky customers, Olive Kitteridge will also be available to stream on NOW. A NOW Entertainment Membership subscription, which costs £6.99 a month, gives access to all of Sky’s pay TV channel, both live and on-demand – without a contract.
Olive Kitteridge tells the poignantly sweet, acerbically funny and devastatingly tragic story of a seemingly placid New England town wrought with illicit affairs, crime and tragedy, told through the lens of Olive (McDormand), whose wicked wit and harsh demeanor mask a warm but troubled heart and staunch moral center. Jenkins portrays Olive’s husband, Henry.
The story, which spans 25 years over the four parts, focuses on Olive, a middle-school math teacher, and her relationships with Henry, the good-hearted town pharmacist, their son Christopher, who chafes at his mother’s parenting style, and other denizens of their community.
