Logan Roy is the head of a massive media conglomerate called Waystar RoyCo that definitely isn’t a stand-in for Rupert Murdoch and News Corp, no sir. When Logan suffers a stroke, his four children — Kendall, Roman, Siobhan, and to a lesser extent Connor — all compete to see who has what it takes to sit in daddy’s business throne.

Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Alan Ruck, Matthew Macfadyen, Nicholas Braun, and J. Smith-Cameron star in the critically acclaimed HBO series.
