Plot summary

What is The Righteous Gemstones TV series plot?

Here is a short review of "The Righteous Gemstones" TV series plot summary.

The Righteous Gemstones depicts a family of televangelists and megachurch pastors led by widowed patriarch Eli Gemstone (John Goodman). Eli and his immature children, Jesse (Danny McBride), Judy (Edi Patterson) and Kelvin (Adam Devine), lead opulent lives funded by church donations. They work to expand their network of megachurches, which threatens to put smaller neighboring churches out of business, such as the church led by Rev. John Wesley Seasons (Dermot Mulroney).
In the first season, Eli's estranged brother-in-law, "Baby" Billy Freeman (Walton Goggins), is brought into the family business in order to lead their newest shopping mall-based megachurch.
