What is Rain Dogs about on HBO?

Rain Dogs focuses on the “unconventional love story” between struggling single mother Costello (Cooper), her 10-year-old daughter Iris (Tashjian), and the working mother’s “privileged” gay friend, Selby (Farthing), per the synopsis. The story portrays how this family is trying “to go straight” in a society and world that is tough on them.

The trailer reveals the mother and daughter’s struggles like getting evicted, credit cards being declined, and their messy life. But all of that is combined with comedic undertones that makes the series a fun watch! Check out the trailer below:

The drama is a HBO and BBC co-production with Carraway, Sally Woodward Gentle, and Lee Morris serving as executive producers. Jo McClellan, Henrietta Colvi, and Ciara McIlvenny take on producing duties.
