HBO and HBO Max are diving further into their stash of period pieces for 2022. Already, they’ve got The Gilded Age whetting people’s appetites with a showdown of old and new money in Industrial Age America between Christine Baranski and Carrie Coon, but they also have one of the year’s mostly highly anticipated shows in Adam McKay’s Lakers dynasty series Winning Time coming in just a few days.
Also coming down the HBO Max streaming pipeline will be The Minx, a 70s nudie mag comedy that follows a fledgling feminist magazine get itself on the ground by featuring nude men. Ophelia Lovibond and Jake Johnson star in this Ellen Rapoport series along with a lot of comedy scene favorites in Lennon Parham, Oscar Montoya, and Jessica Lowe.
For something that is essentially the hypothetical flip of Playboy minus Hugh Hefner, there seems to be some pretty fun promise for the series. Get a delicious taste of what’s to come with The Minx in the first official trailer here, then look for it to stream on HBO Max on Fri. Mar. 17th.
